A Tad Depressed.....

Five yrs ago I began to lose blood, somewhere, for 5 yrs I was chronically anemic, finally surgery fixed that; then I tor both rotator cuff muscles...still exists, which is a bit of a problem since I am an active paraplegic of 36 yrs, played competitive basketball and tennis; then 3 months ago we lost both parents to illness, they passed only 12 days apart....all this has finaly come to breaking point & I am experiencing depression which my doctor responded too and said 'no doubt'. I am on an antidepressant, 3 weeks now, seeing some improvements but have a long way to go. I would love to chat and share experiences / support with others. All the best....D

It sounds like you have had a very rough time of things of late. I hope that the antidepressants continue to improve matters for you. In the meantime, I think you could do a lot worse than tell us all about each of your stories in more detail - some of your struggles seem unique and may teach others useful things, whereas other parts seem like you would find a lot of people who share the same experience. Branch out and explore! I look forward to reading more of your stories :)
