1 day ago · Depression and Chronic Pain in Depression & Anxiety

Hi @petangelkat1, I tried Lyrica for the fibro and got an “altered mental status”. In other words, I was acting crazy and couldn’t form sentences or remember my dog’s name. I tried Abilify for the depression, but don’t think I was on enough to do any good. You’re right in that rain definitely makes pain worse and a cold rain is a double whammy. I actually bought turmeric and then found out I had a clot in my lung and couldn’t take anti inflammatories. Seems like we’re walking down the same path!……..Karen

1 day ago · Nervousness and Worry in Depression & Anxiety

Your post mirrors my life! I am concerned about aging and loneliness. And depression and anxiety are on both sides of the family. I’m not sure if depression, which I’ve had since 1992, causes the anxiety but usually when 1 is bad, the other is good. Right now, I am battling chronic worry. Tools learned are not helping right now. I think it’s time for chemical intervention. I will also reread some books I have (David Burns’s book is one). It somehow feels good to know I’m not the only one!……Karen

Hey Ronnie, good news! I really liked this new guy. He assured me that I was ok-just need to exercise and lose weight! So I’m looking on youtube for exercises you can do from a chair. He told me that any exercise was good. So I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from me! Hope you are feeling OK! Let me know! ……..Karen

@amberpep I feel bad for you. I’m sort of in the same situation. I lived in some low income apartments a couple of years ago. They bring with them their own set of special problems. Now I’m living with my brother which is, to say the least, stressful! So don’t stop looking for a church! Don’t give up! Never! ……Karen

Wow, you had a lot of wonderful adventures with your lab! I think mine (Kelly) loves people more than other dogs. She is an awesome companion. What would we do without our pets?……Karen

Hey everybody, I’m asking for good thoughts and prayers. Tomorrow morning I have an appointment with a cardiologist to talk about heart failure. I am filled with anxiety and worry. Please – you fellow “connectors”! Help!
