Thank you for this video Diana. I can relate totally. In fact I wouldn’t cope if it wasn’t for prozac. But, as you say I observed the depression “as symptom”, well before it became chronic. It was like it dropped out of the sky, and it would go away just as quickly. It still does that now, despite the prozac. I have to say to myself ” this is just another symptom, and like all the other symptoms, it too will lift”. Mine cycles very fast as if bipolar as you say. It isn’t bipolar, but I have a friend with bipolar and I really understand him. When I was going through my divorce, you would have thought it would have brought on depression. I certainly couldn’t cope with all the legalise (like I had brain injury) BUT the depression didn’t hit. It truely is so cruel. The flip side is the anxiety. If people can understand that people with brain disorder (eg stroke, brain injury) can get like us, then I think it is half the battle. We just need to be listened to and heard for what these symptoms are – thats all. They are symptoms.
I really feel for those people who wrote in to you. It is so very hard. Please hang in there all of you. Don’t be afraid to try medications. You may have to do n=1 trails if you are sensitive, but don’t give up on medicine. Its our bodies as much as our brains that lack the good chemicals. Its nothing to be ashamed of. Your drs sound horrid. Its like they have left their hearts at home. You are safe to write about it here.
my love, Jill
Thank you so much for reaching out to others, in the midst of your journey, JillMEnz. That takes a special person. I love what you said about n=1 trials. 😉 And yes, some of us have had some horrid doctors, sadly. Twenty years from now, I think the medical field will look back in horror. Until then, yes, let’s keep reaching out to each other. Big hug coming atcha’, 🙂 Diana
