Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

I can understand your situation.

You have multiple physical problems as well as depression.
Your immobility and financial crisis are current concerns.

It is good that you have support of your husband.

If I were your treating doctor I would like to add duloxetine(symbal) as it is effective in pain as well as in depression.

Yes you can go for counseling with current medicines.

I am not knowing personally over there in Florida. However I have found out list of psychologists and psychiatrist in your city. You can search more about the same and find someone nearest to you. Hope you can find someone whom you can afford and who is ready to help you.Please check below links.
