Depression Questions
#26
I have battled with depression on occasions since my injury. Finally three months ago I went to the doctor and talked about how I was feeling. She put me on Cymbalta....unfortunately I got a UTI from that medications. Then I had to fight with w/c to pay for the blood tests and the meds to treat that. They felt it wasn't related to the injury. But with the pain that I got from the UTI.....I gave up being depressed. The UTI pain was far worse than the depression. I still go through ups and downs, but my neighbours keep a watch out for those times and call on me to take me out etc. I am very isolated since I haven't been able to drive since April. Going outside helps a lot. But I risk falling because of pain or the drop foot I have had since surgery...so I keep close. I do fiddle with gardening. And this last four weeks have been canning fruits and vegs with my neighbour and that feels really productive. My next project is sewing some things for my daughters birthday. I am good at that!!!!

I don't know if the bad depression will return. If it does I will go and see the doctor again and perhaps get some counseling since last time the doctor told me that I would probably react badly to any medications for depression. My biggest problem is being out of work for two years now since the injury. I am most worried about getting back into the workforce after this...if I can even get to that stage.
