When I was going through my tests prior to my diagnoses, I remember filling out a form asking questions like “Do you ever feel depressed?” “Do you ever have moments of anxiety”. Anti-depressents are given out like tic tac’s these days.
The reality is, depression is very real. We are not talking about a slump, where a person is having a bad day. It is an illness that can be chronic that can take over ones life. I am not here to argue whether depression exists or not. What I am here to say is, I think I, along with many other chronic pain sufferers should justifiable be allowed some sad days without judgement.
