Autumn your post really hit home. I remember spending days in my room agonizing over my dry eyes nervous and anxious. My dry eyes are caused by Sjogrens but no matter the cause the emotional impact I believe is the same. I am on antidepressants and probably wouldn't be functional without them. I take Zoloft and Ambilify and haven't noticed a change in my overall dryness. But I have learned there are so many to choose from that a doctor can find what works best for your mental state. Treating your mental state is just as important as treating your eyes. I really feel for you.
If life is a bowl of cherries, then why I am I stuck in the pits!
