You don't have to worry about bringing other down. It just means that you need more support right now and that is what the boards are for.
As far as dealing with the chronic pain, know your limits. If you can't do something that day then you don't do it. Don't worry about what others may think because you can't do something. Let your husband know that when you are upset, you just need him to be there for you and support you. Let him know that by being there for you, he isn't helpless, he is doing something and that's all you need. He may wish he could do more, but that will have to be enough for him.View Thread
I think as time goes on and you realize that there are a lot of people who suffer from depression, your feelings will change some. You won't feel so embarrassed about others knowing you suffer from depression. It doesn't make you less of a person or less worthy of respect or dignity, it just means you have issues that you deal with.

He wouldn't have given you more time if you didn't deserve it and he didn't have some sort of compassion in him. Just keep being the good student you are. When I had to tell my employer because I needed time off, it was hard, but I had to keep doing my job when I got back and that was the difference in how they thought of me.View Thread

We use an artificial tree so we have to put all of the branches up and fix them. That's a real pain. Once that is don, it is a matter of putting decorations up. It didn't take that much time to put it up like I thought it would. I wouldn't be able to put up with the allergies if I had them.View Thread
Basically, all you can do is try them. It's like trial and error. You may need to try a few before you and your doctor find the right one(s) for you. You may experience side effect from them but you will have to decide whether the side effects outweigh the benefit of the meds.View Thread
Make sure your daughter understands that you babysitting cannot be a permanent thing. There is a reason why you are not working right now and you don't want to over do it.
