Hey Boyd,

Give yourself about a week or 2 to recover from being on oxy.  After only a few days you will have withdrawl and for us loonies prone to depression it's worse.  You may feel like crap and kind of blue and irritable.

Hope your foot is healing nicely,

Yeah, Boyd--don't beat yourself up.  I haven't taken that painkiller, but I know after surgery or an injury you can get really depressed.  You have to keep telling yourself that it's the surgery and recovery that is getting you down---and that it is a normal thing.

Good luck with the tdoc.

Hi BOYD!  I haven't talked to you in a while.

I have dysthymia and MDD which, together, are called double depression.  One of the symptoms of dysthymia is feeling tired and unmotivated.  It's possible that, since you can't get around well with the cast and everything, you're having the symptoms without the disease.  Does that makes sense?  Ask your tdoc, though.  I don't really know anything usefull.  I just pretend. ;)
