Very hard to read from an emotional perspective.

Yes, very hard. Especially since I was reading a research article earlier today about how the combination of sleep deprivation from insomnia and depression makes those of us with RLS even more susceptible to suicide ideation and thoughts.

I just wish that pendulum with start swinging back...but I have a feeling it hasn't even reached the far right, yet.

I was telling husband today that I've just been having such a hard time the last few weeks with a minor funk. Right now it seems the cyclical stuff we go through, but I asked him to keep an eye on me - so easy to go down that dark corridor and not even know you are in it, isn't it.

Stewart quickly noticed suspicion not just among doctors but among friends and relatives, too. Did he really hurt that badly? Had he tried exercise? What about Advil? Maybe he just needed more rest.
Sound familiar?

Telling her staff that she was closing the pain clinic, she had said, “I will be shocked if we make it through this without anyone dying.”
Does anything say it better than this?

It was SUCH a truthful and honest look at this.
