I believe MY depression is a symptom of my disease (MS) and not a reaction to having my disease. Antidepressants do help.
When I describe various symptoms to different doctors, normally my frustration is that they automatically assume it is my MS. But with depression they assume it is strictly psychological.
Julie52, I agree 100% that the depression is indeed a symptom. Absolutely. Certainly, the circumstances don’t help, but I strongly agree that this is a symptom of imbalanced brain chemistry (I believe possibly secondary to brain inflammagion?). We understand that for many of us, our blood brain barriers are wide open. NOT GOOD. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Big hug, Diana
