Chronic Pain, Reflux, Depression, Hypertension, Fatigue...Why wouldn't I be depressed with all those medical problems. Actually I'm not clinically depressed anymore--just miserable. And some of the people I went to for help made the situation worse. Some social worker at a local clinic where I went to a peer support group sent me to what she said was a special unit of a local hospital. It turned out to be an ordinary emergency room, where they did all kinds of tests that had been done before and sent me a huge bill (and I don't have insurance). So they just added another worry, which in my experience is common among people who say they are trying to help you. A lot of them are incompetent or just trying to justify their jobs.
