My LLMD ask me about depression and I said "not me" but as I look at my daily life and illness for the past 5 years, my symptoms make me very depressed. I have a gut/colon Lyme problem (I'm going to get more clarification from my LLMD doc in a couple of weeks, all I remember him saying is "yes you've come in contact with Lyme's bacteria" that was from my Ignex testing)
Does anyone take any medication for the "low periods" I can feel so helpless a lot and cry at any second sometimes. When it's worse is when I can hold back my bm and I have a accident (always when I'm driving) and I panic, then for days it sticks in my head that I pooped my pants and how awful of not being in controll of my urgency makes me feel so depressed. I focus too much on "poor me" but really I'm a very postive person and GOD is #1 in my life, so spiritually I'm good.
I'm totally afraid of antidepressants, b/c I heard bad things about them (suicide) but I need something to pick up my mood. I have such highs and lows. Any suggestions friends?
