It sounds like your depression is situational right now. You said above that you are on the highest dose of lexapro that you can take. I am too, with effexor. My psychiatrist added a medication called abilify. I think that it can be taken with lexapro too. Since that and effexor are closely related. It is a mood stabilizer and it really does help a lot. I haven't been depressed in a while, my doctor says I am in remission. So for the time being you might want to ask your doctor about
something like that. Even if it is only temporary.
I am glad that you have a good support system. You have jsut been through a lot. It isn't easy I know. And remember to keep posting here, the members here are wonderful.
I too have fibromyalgia, and I know how hard that is. Your emotional state can really cause you to suffer. It can even bring on a flare. So I hope that you are keeping a check on that. Though I know that there isn't much that you can do if one starts. But try to stay relaxed and keep your stress down. I know easier said than done.
I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Be good to yourself.
