I am going thru a difficult time right now and need some feedback. I see the doctor tomorrow. I am depressed about being in pain all the time 24/7 and not having the life I use to have. I use to be able to walk outside but due to leg pain from arthritis I cannot go very far.  And I have back pain so I am limited on the activities I once was able to do too. I ‘m able to use a wheeled walker. But still have limited mobility issues. I went to PT today and had a crying session instead because of my limits. I am also having a fibromyalgia flare up going on which does not help matters. I know I have to be patient and let the pain clinic do their work to help me.  I have only been going to the pain clinic for 2 months now. I have to make a new life for myself now than the one I had which included the work I did. I was a nurse, but due to my illnesses I became disabled in Oct of 2011. So it is still new to me. My illnesses include degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine – MRI findings bulging disc of lumbar spine except L5-S1 very large herniated disc with displaced nerve root. Osteoarthritis , fibromyalgia, bipolar II , PTSD and Anxiety.

Hi Millymilan,

I think I have seen you on the fibro forum before. Welcome to the depression forum. I am sorry that you are going through so much righrt now. It is good to write about it. Makes it a lot easier to deal with. When you can, try to walk as much as possible. It will make you stronger. I am sorry that you are in a chair. That must be difficult, especially after being as active as you were. I am sure you are tired from the fibro. Have you thought about taking stimulants? I take adderal xr and it really helps me get through the day.

I am so sorry for what you are going through. Keep posting and know that we care.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Queenofkings,

I am sorry that you are going through a difficult time. I hope that things get better for you. Don't try to please everybody. You will be neglecting yourself. Take care of you and the rest comes later.

My best advice is to start counseling. It really helps. A counselor can tell if you need medication or not. They will refer you to a psychiatrist if you do. But sometimes counselling alone can help.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Take care... Keep- posting...

Hugs, Karen

I wouldn't trust it Queenofkings, you might not get the right ingredients. I would get from your pharmacy. But that is just me...

I wish you the very best.

i agree with Karen, get your meds from a pharmacy. a psychiatrist or other medical doctor can make a much better decision on what you need, since they are trained in this.

good luck.
