Physically I'm struggling with muscle aches and tremors that occur during my off time. Emotionally I'm fighting depression. Due to the depression I've become passive. My friend suggested this website and it's taken me a month to take the initiative and join. I'd prefer not to take an antidepressant becasue I'm on so much medication for other issues. I need an attitude change and poke with a cattle prod to turn this around.
