I'm a little over a year out from DDay and I'm just getting more and more sad. It's like a hill and I can't get my footing. I'm debating on talking to my doctor about anti-depressants. Has anyone tried them? Did they help? My WH strongly disagrees with them-has always said that if you are depressed whatever factors making you that way just need to be changed. I can't change the A and the loss of my BFF.

Just trying to find something that helps the sadness and pain.

The key for me was a combination of IC and AD's. I was on a low dosage of an SSRI for a little over a year, and it did wonders for me. Basically it helped alleviate the physical pain of depression and anxiety attacks, and as a result I was able to focus more on my healing. I've been out of both IC and AD's since the beginning of this year, and I am doing fine now.

Good luck to you.

I am almost a year out and have been on AD's for almost 3 months. They gave helped me quite a bit. I'm sleeping better. Roller coaster has slowed down and I feel less emotional. Your WH should halve followed his own advise. Instead of having an A he should have figured out why. Take care of yourself first. (Hugs)

They have helped me a good bit. Not just with the emotions and anxiety, but they also have allowed me to function at work. IMHO this is between you and your doctor, and your WH gets no vote and his opinion carries no weight.

My antidepressant has helped me so much! It won't hurt to at least try them.
