  • Are you on something for this? Does your doctor want you in the hospital? or can you just go through the Doctor?

  • I suffered with depression so I understand. Medication does a lot and so did counselling. Best of luck!

  • I take a lot of vitamins and supplement which helps: B-complex, fish oil, etc. I found that eating chocolate and/or anise will trigger depression so I avoid them. They are hard to avoid as Coke and Pepsi (all colas) have chocolate and list it as 'natural flavor'. When things get worse, meds and counseling have been a big help.

  • I have depression, and I'm on meds for it now, after suffering with it for around 10 years. I haven't ever had to go in to the hospital for it, though. So far, I've been on 3 different meds before I found one that works for me. I hope you are able to get the help you need, and know that you're not alone! Sending warm thoughts and prayers your way!

  • My best friend has suffered for years, and after being diagnosed a month ago with fibromyalgia, I have fought it every day since then. It hit me like a ton of bricks that doctors categorized me because they don't know what's wrong with me. I just deal as best I can. My family has a tendency to become dependant, so I stay away from meds of any sort. I find a tanning bed helps me, I cover myself in sunscreen, and go for 8-10 min. I always feel better, at least for the rest of the afternoon.
