Hey fellow Spineys,
As much as I have been on and off the forums in the last year, I have never posted here much. I have only dealt with post surgical depression myself. But my sister has been diagnosed with bipolar and borderline personality disorder. For about 25 years she has suffered depression that seemed to come and go. Right now she is worse than I have ever known. Getting adjusted to the proper medications takes so long. This has been so traumatic for our family.
She currently lives with me and the stress of this disease is pushing MY pain levels through the roof. I try to be understanding but the constant need for drama is just wearing me down. I wondered if any fellow posters have dealt with this, coupled with our own recoveries or chronic pain? She is currently in therapy on an out patient basis. This seems to be as slow a process as fusion recovery.
I hope everyone is well and as pain free as possible
Thanks and Hugs,
