I am so bummed out lately - does anyone else have depression since being on interferons? Wow, this really kicked me in the bum! I really have always had a very positive outlook on life in general. Even when I was diagnosed with MS, I said "well, this is the hand I've been dealt so now I'll play it out". Well, that just isn't the case lately.
I started Interferon injections (Avonex) in November of last year and in the last couple of months, I've just truly been so bummed out. I hang on to guilt and little stuff really hurts my feeling deeply to the point of crying a lot. I can't even handle when my 3 year old daughter makes me feel bad anymore and she knows how to play her mommy! It's gotten to the point that my kids get away with murder because I don't want them to be mad at me and heaven forbid anyone be upset with me because I cry for days and just feel sad all of the time.
I made an appointment with the neuro and he perscribed Zoloft and gave me a starter pack but I'm already on Concerta for fatigue so that worries me a little.
I guess I'm just looking for any advice on how to deal with just feeling sad all of the time. I use to have a pretty good support network but lately I just feel like I can't burden anyone (husband, family) with that stuff. Maybe I should join a support group?
Any advice would be great. Thanks.
