Hello! I am not depressed. Having suffered from chronic depression in the past I know I am not but I swear, if my new GP tells me one more time that I am, I am going to lose what is left of my patience with him! So cross with him baning on about it, because it has arisen because I told him I had occasion to telephone the Samaritins because I was up druing the night in dreadful pain, standing looking at all my meds with the idea of taking the whole damn lot and being done. I was in despair after three months of intense 24hr a day pain and him not giving me any additonal pain relief, My wonderful husband later looked at the side effects of my medication - pregabalin and oxycodone - and the side effect are EVERYTHING I have been seeing my GP for over the last 4years! so, because the consultant said if the meds dont work, don't take them - but offered nothing as an alternative- iwent back to see GP who wants to put me on Duloxetine AKA Cymbalta - and the side effects are the same - if not worse - so told him I was afraid -seriously afraid to take them because at this moment, I cant bear the thought of being worse! he then said well you have two choices. take it or find a new GP! Then he told me I am chronically depressed! WHY? Because I dare to disagree with him? Because I am afraid? Honest, Iam not often given to wanting to hit anyone,but he is top - he is the ONLY person on my list! grrrrrrrr.
