I have been depressed for sooo many years. One of my biggest complaints to my many trial and error doctors have been that I want to sleep. I will sleep 19 hours a day and still sleep through the night. my job and marriage was at stake . It bothered my kid, it effected my whole life. One doc tried PROVIGIL for sleeping disorders, but it did not work. I just wanted to sleep. I stated hoarding pills that would put me to sleep. I didn't really want to kill myself, I just wanted to put myself to sleep. There was no pain in sleep, no stress, worry, just peace. I ended up in the hospital for a week and another doc stated that I was way over drugged. He put me on Adderall. this is for children with ADHD and is a stimulant. when working, the kid can focus and sort of see the colors instead of a big blurr of life. When I took it however, I slowly(baby steps)stopped taking naps, staying up in the day, doing dishes cleaning off the table or I would throw a load of clothes in the wash.I am also on Cybalta for the depression, but the adderall keeps me functioning during the day so that I can stay awake to be in life.It has been a lifesaver. I know that fatigue is very big in deression, is any one else taking it?

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