I have chemo (Taxotere) every three weeks -- the last one was this past Friday. It seems like every time I have it, I go into a deep depression. Last night all I could do was curl up in a fetal position and sob like a baby. There's no specific trigger. Sometimes I'll be riding down the road and suddenly want to burst into tears. Does anyone else experience this type of meltdown? Incidentally, I do take antidepressants every day. My doc added Ativan as needed . . . unfortunately, it becoming "needed" so much more often. I'm trying to keep a positive attitude and put on a "nice" face for the people I work with and all my family. They have a lot on them, and I can't add to their burden. But sometimes I just want to runaway and never return. Can anyone out there give me some advice on how to handle my emotions!
