I'm so freekin depressed...I don't know where this is going to end. Just passed the TWO year anniversary of Katrina's destruction, still in my FEMA trailer and sinking deeper and deeper into depression. Meds are not helping. Don't know where to turn. Does ANYBODY in America care?

Carine B

Jo, I've spent the past several weeks involved in heavy research on Katrina for a project that I am doing for my job. (I'm a professor.) I have found myself very sad during this process, and angry too. I have an outsider's memory of the horror of the days after the hurricane: I was overseas at the time, and I watched the t.v. coverage obsessively, overwhelmed with an outsider's grief. Working on this project has brought it all back -- but all the more so because I know that true relief still has not arrived for you and others like you on the Gulf Coast. If I feel this crummy and I am not a Gulf Coast resident and Katrina survivor, it is clear to me that you and others on the Gulf Coast must be feeling about 10 million times worse than I do. Please know, then, that I have brought up my feelings not to try to pretend that I, as an outsider, have a clue as to your suffering, but instead to let you know that people really *do* care, Jo. I swear we do, and there are a lot of us out here: we just don't know what to do to help. The slow progress made in the two years since the storm saddens us, makes us angry, and makes us feel for you. The press may speak of 'Katrina fatigue,' but that's B.S.: the hearts and prayers of so many of us are still with you. Jo, please hang on, and know that people you have never met and will probably never meet (folks like me!) are still praying for you and thinking about you. Jo, be safe and well. Take care, friend.


I truly sorry to hears this story.there are medication that can help and they have help.I prey to god your's life is save.god bless u.

How to Deal with Depression

I hope all those people are receiving free counseling and support from depression outreach programs everywhere.

It takes a lot of strength to overcome such challenging circumstances. I wish the best for all of them.


I am a person that lost my older Brother to suicide in Aug 2006, almost 1 year to the date of Katrina, 4 weeks later, I lost another older Brother to Lung Cancer. The truth is that I think that my Brother's Girlfriend and her Son may have had alot to do with both my Brother's deaths, but I can't prove it. But it has been very differcult especially with the suicide.

Very sad...I'm sorry here.

chronic arthritis

The use of a splint or brace can also help straighten some joints. Although surgery cannot cure all deformities, advances in the field have given rheumatoid patients, who previously would have been wheelchair-bound, the ability to continue in relatively normal lives.

One form of chronic arthritis (less widely known) is one that attacks children, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. It may start with symptoms as general as fever and rash, and it may take a long time for a definite diagnosis to be reached. Some children complain of swelling and stiffness in a few scattered joints. When the disease threatens the function of the joints, skilled professional treatment is called for to prevent permanent deformity.

deep depression

Depression, which affects 17 million Americans each year, is the most commonly diagnosed of the psychiatric illness. Statistics show that 15% of all Americans will have at least one bout of depression during their lifetime that will be serious enough to warrant medical attention.
