Yup . . . chronic disease and depression seem to find each other somehow. I think it just wheres us down physically as well as mentally.
I have not taken prozac, but know people who have been amazingly helped by it. I do take lexapro (is that why I eat everything in the house at night. . . LOL, I didn't think of that).
I have taken anti-d's for about 5 years now and it truly got me back to being 'me'. I certainly wouldn't call them happy pills . . . but my old sense of well-being and hapiness is back along with a bit of a backbone which I didn't have before. I think it also gives me an "emotional umbrella". Meaning that I don't take things to heart the way I used to . . . I can let unkind words roll off a bit better.
I hope that helps and I'm sure you'll be happy to see CheerDad (Randy) here as well. He is a source of comfort here.
I hope get some responses from people who actually take prozac.
