Hi Stephens, welcome back.

I'm no Doctor, but I'm pretty sure you have depression. Getting emotional, for reasons you can't explain, are a common symptom.

I think a visit to the Docter, is a good idea, if you get treatment now, the earlier it's diagnosed, the better for you. xx


Thanks but I take 2 different pills for my emotions one makes me sleep I’m on fentanyl patch’s gabapentim codeine paracetamol, tamsulosin fexofenadine and 3 breathing meds so 13 pills a day and then emyphsama . I left out my brother had a lung out just before Christmas he now at stage 1 now but needs chemo but is to weak at moment I’m not upset for me I’ve came to a point where I can handle what happens to me but to others I care about now that’s hard

Take care


Sorry Casper

I never get upset for me I’ve come to terms with everything about me and what’s happening sometimes I need to let it out so thank you I try not going to dr as every time I go there nearly always a new illness I had two students dr’s do a paper on me due to the many illnesses I have and a rare illness to which makes it hard to eat or keep it down or not to choke so I keep going who else can I tell how I feel my dr who I get on with so,so well he does not know how I carry on but we do as we have to

Take care


Hello Stephend .

I'm sorry you're feeling down. Pain can be such a downer. Plus this time of year isn't always full of joy for many of us. I hope you feel better, but if not perhaps have a chat with your gp about your emotional state. Perhaps you could do with some support.

Wishing you a good start to the new year too.

Can xxx 🌹


Hope you feel better soon. Wish you avery happy and healthy New Year x

The time of the year could have something to do with it. Stay strong and happy New Year.
