DEPRESSION AND WHAT IT CAN DO
Last updated: August 2017
I am currently in the throws of a deep and very dark MS depression. It has me consumed with periodic thoughts of suicide. I don't have emotional help from my spouse with regard to my MS. I believe he chooses to think that there is nothing wrong with me. I cannot afford to see a therapist. I don't like or respect my pastor and I believe he feels the same way about me. My depression is so bad that even my faith is being tried. I don't want to become part of the statistic of suicides in MS patients.
It all stems from being robbed by MS. Almost everything I used to love to do has slowly been taken from me. Everything that brought me the most joy in my life is gone. I am literally losing my mind. I recently took a cognitive test and only got a total of 17 out of 30. So my body does not work correctly and my mind is going as well. What is left? Can MS rob me of my soul?
Please tell me there is someone I can talk to about MS depression. I really need help.
