Hi everyone. I think I'm new to this forum, I say think cause my memory is not the greatest. I am on the Fibro forum sometimes. Anyway, I never thought I would one day be checking out a depression forum. ie the subject title.
I began my descent into depression when I moved away from my kids, their grown, but I miss them terribly, then came the Fibro, then neck pain from arthritis, then my husband was diagnosed with a rare cancer, and voila, here I am. I'm hoping to learn a thing or two from you all, and hopefully maybe I can will be able to offer someone a little encouragement as well.
I'm taking Viibryd, I think it is a new antidepressant, but I think it has helped a little bit. I have only been on it about 5 or 6 weeks. I will update on how it is working in awhile. I'm struggling with sadness, but I guess that is normal.
Take care you all, I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you.
