    My 7 yr old grandson lives with me and was diagnosed with grave almost
    a year ago. He has been battling bouts of “sadness” lately. I had
    attributed it to not being able to see his mother, it never ocurred to me
    that the disease itself could be causing it. I took him to counseling to
    try to get a handle on it. I know alot about depression myself, having
    watched my youngest son die 2 years ago. My advice to you is to get a good
    support structure and talk, talk talk! Make sure you get out to walk or
    ride a bike – start keeping a journal of your feelings. Sometimes it helps
    just putting things on paper. It’s one way to get the emotions out of you.
    Make sure you keep your sense of humor. Laughter fights off the bad feelings.
