How many of you suffer from depression? Did someone point it out to you? How did you talk to your dr about it?
I have both so they say.I just told them my life story wich wasn't the great and i have depression and anxiety.So now i'm on medication for that more pills.
Anxiety and depression are buddies. They stick together.
I suffer depression, I knew when it hit me....
Between my panic attacks and anxiety n copd why not depression.....that's what I said to my doctor!!!! Meds take 2-4 weeks or more to get in system n hopefully work.....my meds helped not much....good luck to you...
I have enjoyed reading all of your texts re depression. I, too, believe that God listens and gets me through every day. I was very fatigued this morning and just took the time to settle in my recliner and read and eventually doze off. It is 4:10 here this afternoon and my breathing is better and I have a little more energy. I value everyone of you and I look forward to hearing what you have to say. God Bless you all!
I, for one, did not think that COPD would give me depression. I thought that it was going through a divorce after 38 years of marriage in 2019 and turning 80 last Thursday. I now realize that it has a lot to do with the fact that I cannot do the things that I was able to do from a few years ago any longer. It makes me feel that I am not alone and it really helps to be in this blog. I just wish that I had joined earlier. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks, yes it gives me hope,I pray all lot almost all the time but not on my knees!I'm gonna try that everyday, hopefully he hears my prayers and helps me as well,I'm on meds too ...have a blessed breath ez day.....thank you
I too felt as you did word for word. I can truly say what did it for me was God. Yes God. He is very present in my life. Through lots of prayer and more prayer. Talking to God asking him on my knees because I was so desperate and crying all the time like you to help me get through it. Slowly but surely I noticed I started to smile again. I did go to the Doctor he also put me on medication. But I knew that there was no human that would take me out of what I called THE BLACK HOLE. Only God.
I hope this gives you hope
