HI! Your job history sounds like mine. I will be 60 this year and think I have done about everything an LPN can do. I have had problems with mild to moderate anxiety and depression since menopause and also found out that I had fibromyalgia that causes depression, exhaustion and aching all over my body. I found a good rhumatologist who diagnosed me,put me on an antideppressant and ordered a sleep study that discovered a sleep disorder needing a C-pap machine. Since that diagnosis I have lost over 20lbs and just had a repeat sleep study as my sleep has improved so much. I feel great now for a women my age and work full time. Just thought I would mention this to see if any of the symptoms fit you. Maggie

I think you are right about that one. I am an RN and work in the O.R. part-time. I read a study that showed 90 minutes of exercise a week would work as well, if not better, than taking antidepressant medication for most people. With me I know my mood and lack of energy is directly tied to the weather/lack of sun. My mother has suffered years with season affective dissorder in the winter. Maybe your affected also by the weather. I live in michigan and the winter is loooooooonnnnngggg.
good luck
liz

about me: i have worked in doctors offices, health clinic, coordinator for physical rehabilitation hospitals, floor nurse at hospitals and marketed for doctors. i am busy but not as i once was before my second marriage. i now work part time and have plenty of time to exercise (and i do), but not like i should. i feel it is a depression and i believe in holistic treatment. my depression is occassional. and i can't differentiat between laziness and depression. bottom line i feel deeply that if i can overcome and exercise routinely that my depression, fatigue, laziness (whatever) will subside.

ha! ha!
