So here I am 13.5 years of suffering. The past 4 have been hell.
I’m slowly becoming a shadow of my former self, but try to remain as positive as possible. I went doctors today because my sleep is becoming non existent. I’m very grateful the doctor remembers who I am and my problems. She has placed me on calcium and vitamin D3 supplements to help support me whilst taking steroids.
Also she has put me on antidepressants. Her theory is these tablets will aid my depression, sleep and any pain that maybe affecting my sleep. I half feel defeated by this illness but at the same time I need respite.
Has anyone noticed any improvement in dealing with their illness whilst taking antidepressants. I appreciate everyone is different and we respond differently to medication. I would be most grateful for your feed back xx
