Hello all; It's been a long time since I've posted. I lost my Dad over the Holidays, started crying all the time, at every little thing, took up w. an old lover, it's been extremely rough. So, I can relate. I am very vulnerable, things are very rocky in this new/old relationship (he drinks - any input on how to detach would be welcomed), but he was also extremely supportive during my battle w. my Dad's cancer, through the wake, through the arrangements, etc. so I am not at the point where I am ready to let go, right now, despite our multitudinous problems. However, I am so shaky, so vulnerable, and frankly quite lost. So, yes, I cry everyday. Usually in AM's first thing as I am in so much pain from the Fibro, upon awakening, it is really easy to get the water works started. Hard to get em stopped, though. I guess, in a way, it is better than bottling it all up inside. So, if planning a crying session first thing every morning when you have lot's of things to bawl about is any help to anyone, go for it. Xmas, was to be survived, this year. It seemed to go on forever. Now of course, it will be tinged by the loss of my Dad, for quite some time. The issue about anti-depressants losing their effectiveness, after several years is interesting. Does anyone have any more info on this? I have been on the same anti-depressant forever, and it has limited my libido, and I think it really doesn't do anything, anymore, or worse, may be keeping me depressed. I am trying to access a psychiatric consult, however, since I've moved jurisdictions, I am no longer eligible for care from my prior psychiatrist, and haven't been able to access another yet. I see my PCP today and will inquire, perhaps he has a referral. So, Best to All in the New Year, It is a new Year, Here's to making it as positive as possible.
