Hi Mark,I'm surprised that nobody replied to you.  I thought there would be a lot of us since depression is very common.  Our lives had to change because of MS and there is the regret that we can't ever get back what we used to have and do.  I don't know how long I have had depression and it's hard to think when I actually started being depressed.  Since I went 40 years being misdiagnosed, I guess my depression started when the neurologist told me that I had MS.  I think my depression gets even worse when there's another thing that I won't be able to do.  Carol

Hi everybody,I'm fairly new to MS connections. I thought I would have a look around. I am surprised to see such little traffic on this particular group, and so relatively few members. It seems odd to me since depression is a very common symptom of having MS. (Or so I've been told over and over). I certainly hope that there are not too many people out there with MS who still feel that there is some kind of stigma attached to admitting you have depression. That might keep them from getting help and that what certainly be awful.I have had worsening depression for about 10 years, ever since my MS symptoms worsened, which was a major cause of my divorce. Now I'm just taking it one day at a time and trying to focus on the things that are still working in my life. But, as we all know that's not always easy.I remember hearing a few years ago that some researchers were studying a physiological link between MS and depression. They seemed to think there was a link between changes in the brain caused by lesions in the onset of depression in some people. But I haven't heard anything about that recently. Has anyone else? It might have some bearing on the antidepressant medications one is taking.Mark
