Please ask mom for help. This comes from a mother who would want her daughter to share this info with her. I also am depressed and have osteoarthritis. I have arthritis in my feet and sometimes is painful.I can relate with your pain. My doctor advised that they are now using anti-depressants to help with pain. They have helped both my depression and pain. I can't imagine a mother not wanting to know her daughter is suffering. Good luck!
