You may know me from my scs and pregnancy post. But now my mind is coming up with more questions. I have not gone from my trial yet, that will be set up sometime next week, probably for the following week. I did however go for my behavioral eval, which i passed, even though the psychologist said I could be on the verge of major depression. :O All I told him was that when i think about my situation i get sad. But I have a great support system and try to be as normal as I can. Activity makes my leg scream at me, so the simplest things wear me out. (|: I'd like to think that anyone facing my situation would have reactive depression at times. My husband and I had to move in with his parents, so I had care and he could continue to work and they can help us out. We are 30 and would like to have our own life, but my situation is putting that on hold at the moment. Im facing difficult decisions with my scs as well. So I'd think that anyone would be sad at times in this situation. However, my husband and his family are so wonderful and I dont know where I would be with out them. They really keep me motivated and happy. I understand I need to be watchful for major serious depression but he could have at least told me that it is normal to feel depressed with what im going through, just be mindful for it worsening. Which I am watching. lately, with the pregnancy question, I am more depressed that I have been before, but im beginning to come to terms with it as much as I can right now and have been looking for more info.
Sorry about the rant #:S .... on to my question....
I have been wondering if over time, with consistent use, if the SCS can stop being effective. I have a TENS unit that I use on my leg constantly and b/c of that, the effectiveness has decreased due to me getting use to the sensation i suppose. Can that happen with the perm scs?
thanks so much, you all are always so wonderful. >:D<
