Monday I went to the Doctor, because my depression had been getting progressively worse AGAIN. He increased one of my medications--Invega--from 3 mgs. to 6 mgs. I feel a little better mentally, but the side effects of this medication are horrible. I have a persistent headache, nausea, and since I have been taking this medicine, I have gained 11 lbs. Now that may not be a big deal to some people, but I broke my back losing 40 lbs. in 1 1/2 years. This is very depressing. Changing the medication is out of the question, because this is the first time I have been "stable" again in a long time. I am just so sick and tired of being sick and tired. This illness, which I have had since childhood and I am now 52 and disabled for 24 years, is SLOWLY BUT SURELY DRAINING THE LIFE OUT OF ME! I pray so much, but have gotten to the point where I don't even know WHAT to pray for anymore--except maybe PATIENCE, but it is so hard. I'd appreciate any and all advice.
