career, it was the thought of her
17-year-old son that kept her go-

"I wanted to be here for him,
and fortunately I recognized
what was happening before it got
too bad to handle," she says. "I
took some Prozac and started go-
ing to a 12-step group.
"Being able to share what I
was going through with some-
one who understood was very
cathartic," she says.
But when that didn't prove
enough, she turned her life to-
tally upside down. She found
friends for her son to stay with
and moved into a shelter for the
homeless.
"It was pretty hard to be de-
pressed in a situation like that,"
she says. "A lot of people were so
much worse off than I was. It
was a way for me to pull my life
back together; it was also thera-
py for me, but I didn't know it at
the time. I thought I would just
stay a couple weeks and catch
my breath, but I ended up stay-
ing for five of the six months they
allow."
By the time she left, Mrs.
Adams had gone from victim to
volunteer and was feeling good
about herself again. She was
able to get a job, find a place to
live and get back on her feet.
"Sometimes when your back
is against the wall, you have to
take dramatic risks," she says.
"I wouldn't necessarily recom-
mend it to anyone, but for me it
was quite healing." D

When does ordinary depres-
sion — the kind everyone
struggles with from time to
time -- turn into something
more serious?
Its often a matter of degree
and duration, the experts say.
But when symptoms persist
for more than two weeks, it
may be time to consult a
physician or mental-health
care professional. Here's a list
of what to look for
• Prolonged feelings of sad-
ness, helplessness and gloom.
• Difficulty sleeping.
• Retreating from relation-
ships with others.
• Poor appetite and weight
loss.
• Radical and/or abrupt
mood changes.
• Trmbility to enjoy former-
ly pleasurable activities, in-
cluding sex.
• Trouble concentrating
and remembering things.
• Sense of apathy, a feeling
that life is meaningless.
• Acute anxiety and/or irri-
tabilit-y.
• Persistent self-reproach
or inappropriate guilt.
• Marked loss of energy.
• Lack of response to envi-
ronment changes (day/night,
s-im/rain, work/leisure). 0

Swelling Leg Could Be
Sign Of Thrombosis

MARSHALL FRANKLIN SPEC AL TO THE JEW SH NEWS

M

y wife's parents retired
in the 1970s. They sold
their home in New Jer-
sey and lived on the
road in a 30-foot motor home.
They went everywhere and saw
everything, traveling this coun-
try's length and breadth for two
years.
To this day, my 85-year-old
mother-in-law says that was the
happiest time of her entire life.
When they finallyreturn.ed to
the East Coast, they visited us
in Connecticut. My father-in-law
had been a bandmaster and a
professional master of cere-
monies. He could tell a story. with
the best of them, and he spun the
legends of their travels with
great enjoyment.
On the second day of his vis-
it with us he wore shorts, and I
noticed that his left leg was
swollen. He told me the swelling

fore, but because it wasn't
painful and because he could
walk all right, he did nothing
about it.
I shifted into my doctor mode
and questioned him further. My
mother-in-law told us that once
they had seen a few sights in one
place, he was back in the motor
home and off to see what might
lie on the road ahead. It was not
unusual for him to stay behind
the wheel for several hours with-
out stopping for a rest or to walk
around.
As their travels turned east,
toward home, my father-in-law
became more impatient and
spent more time on the road.
That was when his leg began to
swell.
My mother-in-law told us
about a couple of spells my fa-
ther-in-law had. She said he be-
came short of breath rather
suddenly on a couple of occasions
without anything apparently
causing it. On one such occasion
he complained of some mid-chest
pressure and nearly fainted.
