    have you thought about going on antidepressants my love? even a low dose might help im on citalopram and they help me they do have side affects for the first few weeks so you would have to bear with it they will make you feel worse but that is because the antidepressants replace the old serotonin with the new "feel good cells" we need to make us feel happy and uplifted. once they kick in they do work you dont have to keep suffering if not get hold of a good aromatherapist  who will make you oils for your depression good luck and you can always count on this forum for support its been a god send to me

    Sorry to hear but I agree with the antidepressants.  They can help you get out of this and back to your usual routine.  : )

    Hi Sharon,,

    so sorry to hear you are struggling through a hard time, i am the same after a gallbladder op. Did you know that surgery often causes depression? Lots of reports of women having depression after a hysto, any surgery can do it. the stress on our bodies is enormous. After my hysto i was fine no problems, but this surgery caused me to hit the brick wall, im now trying my third lot of ad meds. I do agree with other ladies you need some help, do not  try and cope alone, meds will definately help you. The first few weeks of taking them may be rough but once the meds are in your system im sure you will benefit! Sending you hugs 🌷
