Marion...did you lose your child recently? I am happy i found this NSBR area...but it may be too much for me...with MA's illness...now thinking your loss was recent..................I have a genetic depression illness...I am lucky because...though I had the genes since birth they did not manifest until I was older...like diabetes it is easier to treat when you are older...but I really cannot take too much bad news at once, anyway.
We didn't know where our oldest daughter's illness had come from until i developed the same thing...it's not like regular depression...it's always there...must be treated constantly...I am doing very well but our daughter can only survive because she gets ECTs whenever she needs one...she is a retired Navy officer...thank goodness...because she can get them whenever...she also takes medication.
Oh, goodness...I better get busy with something else...but please know that I do understand the pain and wish i could be close enough to give you BIGGG HUGGGS whenever...;o)
BTW...I have a firm belief that because of some incredible "coincidences" that have benefited our DD's siblings that perhaps our Nancy Clare is doing whatever she can to help them...;o)
Girls all do not know. They had found one gold mine in this community, here the people they are as jewels, Dr. Marion and one of them, I am certain that one day all in the ones in we will find in some place of this world ok
No Nancy, I did not lose a child, My grandman and uncle died both in the same week. My grandma was 92 so for her I am greatful, she is in a better place, but my uncle just turned 60! His wife, my aunt was taking care of her mom, and called home and got no answer, she went home to find him sitting dead on the couch. Very unexpected and very heartbreaking. I guess for me it is so hard to be so far away from home. All my family is overseas in the Netherlands, and it is just sometimes difficult to be not be able to be there and share the grief.
This is a incredible wonderful and caring forum and everyone is always there when you need a shoulder to cry on, or a special prayer request.
Thanks for asking!
