Have had depression and since a very young age. Also suffer from OCD, but it's managable.
Lost six family members, including my mother and two uncles, to cancer from 2006 to 2009 which made the depression pretty bad for me, but I am coming out of most the funk after six years and several medications. I am currently only on klonopin (1 mg/1x daily) which seems to help with the anxiety and depression.
Am currently taking care of my wife who was diagnosed as being bipolar, having severe anxiety and depression and also was told she has MPD's by her PCP. She is also borderline diabetic and feels she fibromyalgia and possibly has borderline aspergers syndrome as well.
I also take care of my father who is aging and, we believe, may have the beginning stages of Alzheimer's disease.
