I have a doctor’s appointment next Monday—a miracle (seriously) given the Canadian system. :) Usually you have to wait months to see a doctor. I just called last week. :)
In the meantime, make sure you are well-rested. Also, music that makes you want to get up and dance can be really mood lifting.
Take the miracle you have been given (the quick access to a doctor) and discuss medical options. A lot of depression is truly a chemical imbalance in the brain. Discuss with your dr you other physical symptoms as well. Correcting brain chemistry is no different than correcting the pancreas lack of insulin production via diabetic meds.
Keep strong in your faith—get your paperwork done quickly and avoid that temptation—and know that aid is around the corner next week w/you doctor.
Be strong—sending prayer & good thoughts your way!
