My wife is a mrs c, too!. You can hang here as long as you want and I know you will find the help you need. I have advanced disease and because of that and the treatment I am unable to perform. But my Ruthie is my rock. She is so good to me. I am certain that your husband will feel the same way. And he isn't going anywhere. Sometimes we can't just do things on our own, so we reached out. If you have to see your doctor and tell him about
your concern for depression. He can present a script
for a mild anti-depressant.
We decided to take part in a study that is available to you right now for free. I highly recommend you contact the study group and see if maybe you might want to take part. You can click below to see it:
