I have not been post like I should but I am fighting depression and find myself just not wanting to be online much. I am on medication we just upped it again so I hope it kicks in soon. I want you all to know even though I am not online all of you ladies are always on my mind and in my prayers. Please be patient with me while I go through this problem right now I hope the medication will work now that we have upped it.

Much,
Love, Hugs, and Prayers

Thank you so much for checking in with us, despite the depression. I know from experience - when you're depressed, it's so hard to care about anything. I too hope that your increased dosage kicks in real soon. Sometimes it's necessary to alter the dosage to get the amount just right for the person. Believe me, shortly you will be feeling so much better! I've been on an antidepressant for about five years (before my cancer diagnosis) for anxiety, panic attacks and mild depression, and it has worked wonders for me.

Please don't feel bad that you aren't coming to this board as often as you want. I truly understand and am sending you lots good thoughts and prayers!

Hugs,
Kelly

No apology necessary. Just take care of yourself! Hopefully the med. increase will help soon. I'm sending you a virtual hug!!

I see your posts on facebook sometimes. I'm sorry you are having such a tough time. I join the other ladies in hoping your medicine change helps you. Don't ever feel bad, we all have our good and bad moments and thankfully it all has a place here.

The meds took about 10 days to begin to kick in and then the shoulders-out-of-the-ears-feeling will be gone. Then to being able to smile again. I take two meds, Xanax and another I can't recall now, but I truly feel I would have lost my mind witout them! Hope you kick the bug you have and get back to happy again! Best, debrajo

So sweet of you to take the time to let us know how you are doing. Wish it was better news. But here's hoping that the change in dosage will be just what you need to get out of this pit. I know depression can be so awful.

Sending prayers and hugs for brighter days, and the strength of the Lord!

I know how you feel. Since I have been on an anti-depressant, life has become much more bearable. I wish you well - post when you can.

Cheers,
Jo
