Thanks, everyone, for your replies. You don't know how much I appreciate your words of encouragement (as I sit here at work crying
Yes, we are going to try to appeal again, but at this point I feel like we won't get anywhere. My husband is completely dejected and demoralized and now I have added worrying about him to my list of worries (typical, right! ). He is normally such an upbeat, positive person and I know he is trying to stay strong for my sake, but I can tell that he is down.
Don't know whether I should make a doctor's appointment at this point (I do have a call in to the therapist for an appointment)- was doing so-so with the Zoloft, though not great (mornings were so good, but as the day went on I felt better) and this new "punch" has me very upset. Maybe once the initial "shock" of the unemployment denial wears off I'll feel stronger- and I know that no amount of meds can take problems away-only masks them- so I don't know if adding Wellbutrin (as the doctor had suggested we may end up doing) or switching to something like Lexapro would do me any good- or if I just need to ride this through... It's bad enough having the A/P- why does everything else have to happen!?
Well, again, thanks for your concern!!
