: depression is just part of the recovery process.
: you may want to reconsider your ideas of the anti-depressants as they may be necessary.
: the best you can do is stand by her now give her your support, god knows i'd died if my wife
: hadn't and i thank god ever day she did and has continued to do so i would email to you but mine is on the blink right now.
: but i do check this board every day any help i can give you will be a pleasure.
I am a 25 year old who also had a stroke six months ago and Larry is right- depression is just a part of it. You need to understand that what she is going through is something that you can't even imagine no matter how hard you try! You need to let the Dr.'s make decisions about meds. My husband would have loved to make a lot of decisions for me but he doesn't have a medical degree and he didn't know what I was going through. Just be there for her and love her! Be there for support and trust your Dr.'s!!
