Take care.- Hope it helps.-

Aaron, It won't let me respond on your other post unless I comment. You are 18 years old and in alot of pain, pain causes depression and more pain. It is entirely possible your medical condition is amplifying this situation. Have you tried any of the antidepressants like amitriptyline that help with depression and pain. It is very cheap and the only side effect I ever had was thirstiness, that is a small side effect. Please let us know how you are. Patti

Oh Thank God, Aaron, I know it is a huge process to try and figure out what works, believe me, I am very sensitive to antidepressants and most of them send me into mania on the half doses. I am NOT bi polar and mania completely freaks me out. I respond to a small dose of amitriptyline (25 mgs) and/or a small dose of regular ( not extended release) prozac and nothing else has worked. But I have done lots of counseling, and I have started walking to help me get off suboxone, and the walking does release endorphins and it has helped. This might not be possible for you to walk, but something is going to work, I am not sure what will be. You will have support here and that means alot. You didn't say what degenerative disease or condition you have. Post something on this and maybe we will get some answers.
