MS and Depression

Imagine being so clinically depressed, that you cannot practically function... that's one of my MS symptoms. In association with my pre-existing Bi-Polar Depression, this often prevents me from participating in life. And - depression is not just "feeling sad"...

Not practically functioning includes... the inability to shower daily, to wash clothes, dishes, vachume, change bedding, normal domestics... unable to find motivation to do anything that would normally bring me pleasure and enjoyment.

Somedays I cannot get out of bed. Yes, honestly.

I can't always stop/prevent it, nor always pin-point a 'trigger'.

It's very isolating and frustrating, and I know that most people simply cannot fathom what it must be like.

And no, I'm not making this stuff up.
