Re: [IPk] Good News Or Not?

Hi Dave

I have not got D myself but have a 7 year old with D.

 This thing with depression does seem to come up a lot on other D support
lists a lot.  You say that you have taken antidepressants on and off since
you were 14.  Is this before the D.  Sorry I cant remember how long you have
had D.

Have they tried you on different tablets?  It sounds as though these ones
are not working that well for you. I have in the past taken tablets for
depression so I remember how it feels when just doing a simple everyday task
seems impossible.  A lot of people think that tablets are not good to keep
taking but it's like insulin, if you need it, you need it.  Don't feel
guilty about something you cannot help. Does the counselling help at all?
Perhaps other on this list can tell you of their experiences what they found
that worked.  Take care.
