Hi Sid,
     I think everyone gets frustrated with this process at one point or another and for one reason or another.  Being disabled is not what we all planned for our futures but at the end of the day, we are where we are.  We have to hold our heads high and do the best we can every day.  You are very lucky that you have a wife who cares deeply for you and that you have the support you need to realize that an antidepressant is what is best for you right now.  
     I agree with you 100% when you say that if you are getting depressed there is help out there and you should seek it.  
I speak from experience not expertise.

Hi, I'm sorry for your troubles. My husband has had a hard time himself with the facts that he can't work anymore. He is only 48 and had a wonderful job. He was a volunteer fireman also and was hurt while fighting a house fire. He received SSD his first try, but he has many other illness's such as 3 heart attacks, diabetes etc. His depression has gotten the best of him many times. But he now knows that he can come to me and talk it out. And we work through it each time. He is now taking Paxil and has started on Neurotion for nerve pain which is also used for an antidepressant. Just keep "talking" it helps so much for him. Took him a long time to open up but now he see's it helps to talk about it and not keep it bottled up inside of him.

I myself have applied SSD back in Oct. The wait is killing me. I have a previous post explaining my dilemma. It's been a rough road for both of us. We both substained job injuries with in 6 months of each other and then in Dec we both had massive heart attacks on the same day in the same We are meant' to be together I do think. (I have other health issue's also)

Just never thank that you cannot talk to people. The doors are always open with either your Dr, your spouse, a friend, your pastor, on here, where ever you can find someone to talk to. I hope things take a quick turn for you. I'll say a prayer for you.

Yes, you are very fortunate if you have someone to support you.  A support system is the key to not giving up.  That's why I'm glad I found this site. 

I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks.  It started before I was born.  After the abortion my mother chose to have I started panicking in the womb.  When that abortion killed her and I was left alone I knew it.   When I was born and as I grew up I was afraid to be alone and to do things alone.  And to this day, I still kinda have that problem.   I knew my sister was in there with me.  People think babies don't know things when they are inside their mothers, I'm here to tell you they do. 

My mother noticed how I was afraid to be alone and to do things alone, thinking she could help me,  she started dressing my sister next to me in age alike.  She bought us clothes alike, toys alike, bikes alike.  Either she was doing it to help me or to help herself or both. 

Okay I have to stop now I am breaking down.  This is hard.
