Ditto to what Rosie said. I didn't think I needed any help dealing with a chronic disease until recently. I then realized I have been suffering from depression for years and not only need professional help, but the anti-d meds make a world of difference in how I face life's challenges. Talking to others, professionals, friends, and HW family helps too. Good luck and keep us posted on how things are going.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
