what do you do with yourselves during the day if you don't work? i used to be a full time registered nurse til this horrible disease forced me to take a disability retirement 3 years ago, i have no friends, i recently rejoined the church, i go sundays and wednesdays, the rest of the time, i lay in bed 12 hours a day, just watching tv, i do have a part time job, about 6 hours a week, then i come home and go back to bed, no friends, just family, i go to a dr or a therapist a least every 2 weeks, i have no energy or desire to leave the house, i visit this site a lot, looking for some type of support group in my area, of course there are not, i have a loving supportive husband that works full time, he doesn't know what to do with me either, i have 3 dogs that provide some comfort for me, please give me some ideas,, thanks in advance,, i've tried about every pill there is to try,, i take 5 now,,, i'm also menopausal, which i'm sure is contributing to some of my depression,,,
