Subject: Depression as physically painful? Date: 3/26/2001 7:10 PM

Hello all

I have a question.

A good friend of mine is diagnosed with bipolar disorder (type II). She is normally on medication which does wonders but for the last several months she and her husband have been trying to conceive and she can't be on her medicine if there's any chance she might be pregnant.

Needless to say, it's been a rough several months and I am trying hard to be just as helpful and supportive as I can be. However, I just don't know all that much about mental illness in general or depression in particular, so I am trying to learn as I go along.

She often talks of being in acute physical pain, which is a symptom of depression that I had never heard of before. Does anyone here have any experience with that? Or know of a good on-line source for me to do a little reading?

Thanks.

KrissyLou
