Chronic pain and depression go hand in hand often and it is often difficult to admit that you are depressed. I was in the land of denial until a light bulb went off in my head and I realized that crying everyday was not normal. I was also snapping at the children and hubby. Finally I asked my doctor for something and she put me on Prozac. I take 10 mg at bedtime and boy was it my lifesaver. In fact, my hubby said I needed the med along time ago!!
