Lol, germaine, I never thought of that! I wonder if that makes people scratch their heads?

WyoNewk, thank you for sharing. It's "nice" to hear someone else admit they screwed up bigtime after the death of their spouse.

The world seems to have no patience or mercy for this sort of thing.

Take anti-depressants. You may have to be on them for a few years. They just make the pain subside quite a bit. I've done it and happy I did.

In the future, if need be, I recommend St. John's Wart, a natural anti-depressant. If you don't want to do a prescription drug.

Those pills don't like me. I felt worse.

I was on a different one that made me feel worse too. Fortunately the next one worked for me but I know some people who have to try a few before the doc finds the right one. That is why I recommend the natural alternative. Just remember to tell the doctor and anesthesiologist if you ever do take St. John's. My doctor told me that.
