Good morning all!
I am new to this board, usually frequent the Chronic Pain forum, but figured since I have suffered from depression most of my life, I should hop on over here too.
I am a 31 year old wife and mother. I have two boys, ages 10 and 11, and a wonderful husband who doesn't understand either my chronic pain or my depression, but gods love him he tries.
I was diagnosed at 12 years old with Manic Depression. I have tried more meds in my life than I can recount, and Effexor XR seems to be the one that helps the most. My biggest struggle with this med is the cost since I have NO insurance, and the generic is expensive too. =(
Anyway, hope some of you are out enjoying sun, here in Montana it is grey and cloudy.
