Hello, I am new on here--I have joined several of the support groups, Chronic Pain, Grief and this one. I am very nervous about what has happened to me here lately--for the past four years I have had liver issues--(lots of procedures) and have constant pain in my upper rght side that WILL NOT GO AWAY!!! and they have no idea now why it continues to cause me pain--It is a wild circle--side startes to hurt, panic comes on, followed by Anxiety followed by nausea and not keeping the meds down, and then Depression hits. I hit the bottom of the barrel on August 30th--the week of August 31st, I could not function--I coud not get uf of bed t even get ready for work, didn't answer the phone--nothing, just didn't care. I ended up in the hospital ER on 09/09/09 (my 40th birthday..LOL) and was admitted to the the psych ward for treatment. I was diagnosed with Severe Depression with Painic and Anxiety, with underlying sucidiual tendencies. I guess I was sort of like huh? In my younger days, I was so care free and laid back, what happened?? I just wanted to post and ask everyone what they do for coping skills--and how long does and antidepresent take to work--I am on 300 mg of Wellburtrin--also is 300mg a normal dosage or is that a high one? Also, anything over the calender that works for depression? Sorry this is so long--thanks.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
