I live in the western part of NY and suffer from depression. What else should I say other than it snows almost every day....I can't remember the last time I saw the sun. Then there is the money thing and lack of a job. The depression just gets worse when all this adds up and I just can't take it. I take my medication and do what I'm suppose to and it all looks so dark. I know that tommarow will come and I can hope that it will be better. I just feel so alone right now and so depressed. If I could I'de move south maybe that would help me and my depression. I so hate NY and the snow....but I hate depression even more.....

Im real sorry to hear that. Just know that you are not alone. I am not on any antidepressant pills but i do really need them, I am in the middle of a flare with a 18 month old daughter seperated from my husband and in college. Today I was in to much pain to get out of bed but some how had to to make sure that my daughter ate breakfast. She is going threw her terrable twos and is truely a hand full for anyone much less someone ill. All everyone tells me is to suck it up and carry on life but they do not have lupus so they do not know how hard it really is. Im failing out of school because I find it such a chore is get out of bed and go to class.
Life is real hard for everyone with lupus, im in no way going to tell you to suck it up but I want you to know that there are other people out there like you, and your not alone were all here for you!!

I'm sorry you are feeling so bad. Depression is a horrible battle. I'm like you, solar powered and the winter is tuff! (BTW- i'm in South Miss.) We're having a really unusually wet and cold winter. I am going to pray for you. Sometimes it's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but hang on HELP is on the way! God Bless you, JUDY

Hi hun, well like the others said yes winters are bad for some of us. I know a few of us like the cold but I can't hardly go anywhere in the winter. I have been blessed with having people to come see me from the church because they know I can't go there without a risk of being in the hospital. I also can understand wanting to move. I only moved a couple of miles and what a difference that has made for me. different envirnment and a place to myself. My son was stationed at fort drum in 2003/4 I spent that winter there with my grandbabies while he was in iraq. I remember getting off a greyhound bus and sliding on the ice. Yes I lived in arizona and cowboy boots don't work on the ice.

Maybe you should talk to your doctor. Mine has changed my meds when they start to not work for me. Sometimes we need to make changes.

Just hang on let's hope feb 2 that ground hog works his magic and it makes for a fast upcoming spring.

huge hugs
