Thank you all so much for welcoming me back everyone, I have to say that I truly feel loved by this great family.
Unfortunately, I've been very depressed and it finally caught up to me. One of the reasons that landed me in the hospital is because I wasn't eating hardly at all so I didn't have the energy or reserves to help myself fight the depression.
When I went to see my pdoc last Tuesday, I was pretty sure that I would be admitted to the hospital. I just knew that I was that much of a mess. But I also knew that with the thoughts and prayers coming from this wonderful family, along with those from my own family I would get better and be home soon.
I am continuing the ECT treatments on an outpatient basis for the next couple of weeks and then it will be done on an as needed maintenance basis to help keep the depression under control. I've had 3 treatments already and after each one I feel a little bit better - it feels like the depression might be kept under control this way. I sure hope so because I don't want to go back to the hospital again.
Well, that's all I have for now - I will be reading posts and trying to catch up with how everyone is doing. In the meantime, if anyone should want to contact me please don't hesitate to email me or we can chat on Yahoo - my screen name is wen4003. I look forward to catching up with you.
Again, thank you all for your love, support, well-wishes, and prayers - this all helped me to get well enough to come home again to be with my family during this holiday season.
