The hospital helped me.......I had stopped functioning. The physicians (psych and internal med.) were great. They know the how devasting depression can be. There was no "it's all in your head."
My hospital used the "team approach" for treatment.........everyone, nurses, social workers, people that maintained order (insured that you went to group etc) and physicians participated in your treatment. I was under observation the entire time and all actions/reactions were evaluated...... All that rambling to say, the doctors had a much more accurate view of my case..... also for the first time in my life I let everything come to the surface. I learned that the abuse I suffered as a child was still causing me a multitude of problems.
I met a lot of great people and saw many people facing more demons than me. I also realized that I was not alone..........I saw others fighting the same "battle."
Sorry to ramble so.........I am still adjusting to the medicine changes. Please let me know if you have more questions......I will be happy to give you my email address. I know that you are in a terrible situation........I feel your pain. You are so right......we have to cling to our faith and pray for the strength to get through the day.
Have you had any side effects from the neurontin?
