Jun 21, 2015 · Sharing a Personal Message of Hope in the Battle Against Depression

Im glad she found life again, Deprrssion is hard to live with and through. My depression statted 7. To 8 years ago after a dentis blew out my left sinus and side with the compressed air from the drill. I was on top of the world when this happened. Just published in a book “this day in the life of working women” had a great fun job, top tier performer, great family, was a granma of a 3 yr olf. It all changed when i was 39 and a blink of an eye. Doctors au UPMC can’t see whats wrong and 1 was also very irrogant. I needed and still neef help. Not cut down by a doctor, who thought I was already going undet sidation but was still wide awake to hear her comments. I always helped people my whole life anf loved life, now i needed the help and nevrr found it. I cant help but cry as i type this. I live in cronic pain amd misfunction of my sinus, swelling that gors up and down, and a small hole in my palate from a nerve block that chemically burned me instead of helping. I knew it was more than a nerve but no one listens. To having a great job. Lots of fun. Terrific family and lie. To being disabled, depressed, and no where to turn to for help. EspeciLly since in Pittsburgh UOMC has its own insurance and they denied out of neywork for me. So im stuck loosing everythung i worked for living in a world i dont wamt to be in. I know there are may reasons for depression, no matter what the cause it’s horrible, dark, lonely, helpless, and feel like a burdan to your spouse, uet go on for your grandchildren. Maybe in another 50 years they will know more abouth the human body and be able to repai damage in a hard area. I would never wish this on anyone. I always said i”d rather lose an arm or foot and handicap in thay way. Having deep inside your face everyday is draining. I am under treatment and try to say OK today I’m going to think positive and go for a walk or complete household tasks, but the pain creeps in and you have to sleep to paralize your body to get the swelling and pain down, and repat. I hope like Ruth I’m the social butterfly i once was, I am happy Ruth has another chance at life. It is good to see her happy again. Sorry for any typos. As i am typing on a tablet and my eyes are a little teary right now. But dont feel bad for me, i just look at it like there has to be a reason for this, i hope,
