Re: [IP] De Pression



HI Sara,

One of the main problems with my having to admit depression was the
cavalier - matter of fact way my diabetes was approached from the medical
personal I dealt with.  I always thought to myself - if this as easy as they
portray it to be then why am I having such a hard time. (I realize now they
approached it this way to keep me calm-didn't work I just grew more anxious
and held it all inside) Like everything else then, I took it personally and
thought myself a failure - couldn't understand my anxieties etc. Finally one
day I just broke down in my endos office and cried for two days-they called
my family physician to make sure I got in immediately. They also commented
"we wondered how long you'd be able to keep your front up, there's nothing
wrong with taking an antidepressant we have a lot of diabetic patients who
take antidepressants." I too am on Celexa and it has made a wonderful
difference for myself and my family.  Don't be afraid or embarrassed it is
what it is-take care of yourself we only go around once.  Stay in Touch with
this Group and Take Care - Carol T.
