I got to thinking as I read this. People post from time to time on this board who are clearly depressed, or post about someone who is clearly depressed. It makes intuitive sense that depression frequently follows treatment for this disease, but I was unaware until now that anyone has actually looked at it. I know this: no one ever asked me questions about depression throughout all of my several treatments. No doctor, no nurse nor social worker, not one time. Depression can be treated. All of us aroud this disease; patients, family and other support people, need to be aware of it and get it treated as it arises. The disease is hard enough.
