I am posting for a friend who doesn’t feel comfortable posting for herself. I tried to have her post but she won’t. I can vouch for her following description of her illness since I’m the one encouraging her to get help. I’m posting with her permission.
“I have no energy. No drive. I have to force myself to do all things that I must do. I’m married with two children. I was always social, but no longer want to be around people. I feel like I’m wasting my life. I feel very alone. I take Cymbalta and Welbutrin. This has been going on for a few years. I’ve gotten myself into financial trouble because I can’t think straight.
My note: She is embarrassed of her sickness– doesn’t want anyone to know. Her children are not effected as far as I can see.
