Hi Sigi,

I didn't know you suffered from depression. You seem so lucid and eccentric. I wondered why you were *here*. (Not to over simplify....)

The past few weeks, off and on, he'll say something like, wow, I have a headache! Or stomach ache or.... At first it was all I could do not to whip out a paper bag to breath into because my depression is
increasingly physical rather than cognitive. Chronic pain episodes, needing to cancel plans. I'm not crying my eyes out or screaming my head off. I actually feel more in touch with my son then ever (oh the d*mn irony). Still, it's like, what's the matter with mommy?

So, yes. *My stuff* separate from his would be grand. That would be good, yet poignant to hear from one's son. Thanks.

MDD currently controlled. C-ptsd and comorbid health concerns. Chronic fatigue.
