@Junebug1954 Hello Junebug1954, thank you for creating this discussion. I'm sorry to hear you're in pain. Pain and depression can be closely related; it can create a vicious cycle where your pain worsens your depression, and then your depression worsens the pain. Let me tag some other members who can maybe share some advice or support.
