All To WellTo say I am familiar with the disease is an understatement. I was diagnosed myself back 15 years ago . . . when I finally was put on an anti-depressant for it . . . though I've had it all my life . My mother has it and my older brother has a severe case of it . . . he prays to god every night to take him . . . it's enough to rip your heart out. My fiance has also had it all his life and in these last 6 months it has been severe . . . he can't even work right now because of it and is on short-term disability . . . spent a week in a psych ward 2 months ago . . . and just recently talks about suicide . . .which puts me on watch . . . and I have been walking on egg shells ever since . We have tried everything to make him better . . . phsychiatrist . . . phychologist . . . many different meds . . . talk therapy . . . exercise . . . meditation . . . you name it . . . we've tried it . . . to no avail . . . he is supposed to return to work in a couple of weeks . . . just have to keep our fingers crossed . . . .and hope he doesn't break down again . It is a vicious disease once it gets it's hooks into you . . . and with the way things are now like the economy . . . sadly I know we are in plenty of good company. For all those who have it or are somehow effected by it you have my sympathies.
