Thank you, all of you, for you kind thoughts and prayers. I really appreciate it and I trully feel strengthened by it.
Donna, I have heard people make comments like that. I have absolutely NO problem taking depression meds. If I were diabetic, I would not refuse insulin and no one would expect me to. If someone wants to argue that a Chrsitian should need such meds, then, in my opinion, they have to be ready to give up on ANY med for ANY illness. I think there is a great deal of ignorance regarding depression and the meds that treat it. Most people do not understand that the brain has a certain ideal chemistry and that many things can cause that balance to go wacko.
Sorry you've had such a rough time this year. Fibro, all by itself, can cause depression. The pain or illness from any chronic condition really contributes to deprssion. I hope you have found the Fibromyalgia forum here at Healing Well. It is a very active group. I do not have fibro, but I do have lupus and have really benefited from the Lupus forum here. It's a really great bunch. I hope fibro is a similar group.
Nice to meet you Donna!!
