I am experiencing something very strange to me. 3 years after my rupture I'm starting to get depressed easily. I look back where I've come from, near death to a Level II Adult home, fighting to get out of there and I did it, not many people do. Fighting to get Social Services Adult protective out of my life and my wallet and I did that too. To now, my last Dr.'s appointment and finally after 3 years, getting the ok to get my drivers license back. I am thinking I've won a lot of battles and maybe there are no more left to fight so depression sets in. I force myself to get out and interact with other people and exercise even though its cold I walk a lot. I don't want medicine, reducing my medicine intake was another battle. I'm down to just 4 drugs now from 8 way back in the beginning. I've asked other aneurysm victims about this and find its very prevolent to them too. It bothers me though to experience it.
