My 75 yo mom was diagnosed with sclc in March 2008. After aggressive chemo, her doctor declared her cancer free, this month. The problem? She's depressed and contradicts everything that comes out of her mouth. One minute she's happy, the next, angry, sad. She refuses support groups, the Link program, vitamins, anything that we've been told can help her. She says she's not depressed, yet she won't leave the house, no matter how much we beg and plead. She tells me one thing, each one of my sisters or brother another. Her not-divorced husband, my dad, lives in another town (that's a whole different story....)and visits her often. Yet when he's here, he gets on her last nerve, but when he's not here, she wants him there. We are at a loss of what to do or say. Any advice from anyone would be greatly appreciated. She also refuses antidepressants. What do we do or don't do??? Thanks in advance!!
