Or in this case......what came first.......the depression or the FMS? I saw my GP today for a follow up to get new paperwork for the insurance company which she is extending until I see the pain clinic on 2/7. She has spoken with the pyschartist I saw a few weeks ago. They both find it co-incidental that the depression & FMS both started 6 months after I left my husband. Yes I was upset that my ex was acting like a crazy person and was trying to get custody of our at the time 1 year old that he had never taken care of. I have been stressed & had my ups & downs but I really don't feel like I have dealt with "chronic depression" until the past several months when I have pretty much had to deal with giving up with my career and the pain has pretty much taken my life away. I know that stress & depression can make the FMS worse but I have a hard time buying into the whole "fix your mood & loose the weight you have gained & you will feel better philosophy". I am taking the Welbutrin & trying to loose weight but the medicine for the FMS is part of why I have gained so much weight & the pain from walking and doing dishes or laundry is a majority of the other part. Any supporting words out there????
