My doctor just diagnosed me with severe depression. I am now taking Wellbutrin XL to help with my moods.

Was also diagnosed with FM and CFS, which is fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue for those who don't know.

I will post more later.

they're hoping that the med will help me calm down enough to go to sleep at night. Therefore giving me more healthy rest. Other than that and getting more excercise..there is not much else they can do.

Thank you all! I really needed to see that there are others who do care about me.

It has been a rough couple of weeks. I forgot to call the doctor and make my appointment. My blood pressure has been elevated all week, so I have been resting a lot.

Trying not to get stressed has been helping some. I am also sleeping better this last week.

Love you gals and guys! :)

Thank you Pembroke.. you are absolutely right. It does help knowing that others care and are praying for me. That someone is always here for me to talk to when I need them.

Thanks for all the words of love and encouragement and know that I am here too, if you need me to talk to.

Love you too Claudia. Thanks all of you for listening. Today wasn't as bad as yesterday. I missed church because I was so miserable.

Today hasn't been so bad..and I did get some sleep. The meds have been helping.

Thanks again everyone for being here for me.

Ok.. I am back again. I was really depressed yesterday after seeing the doctor. I did score better on the testing from the last time though. If I do have inflammatory arthritis it just adds another illness to the growing list.

I am soooooooo tired of being in pain, being depressed and not able to do things around here. Kids still won't help. I told them we won't go on vacation if they can't help around here. They will spend their vacation cleaning if I have to get my sister over here to supervise.

Sorry to be always down. It's just they don't understand what I go through each day just to get out of bed. :(
