Iknow I'm suffering from depression, I've been caring for my husband of over 30 yrs. He has stage 4 bladder cancer. We have a Dr.s appt. Tues. I'm scared to death. He hasn't gotten out of bed for 2 months, so I just I just stay beside him. I also lost my 42 yr.old brother just B-4 x-mas, and my other younger brother and Mom in the past 2 yrs. I cry much more than I should. I can't talk to my kids. I also have my daughter and her 4 young daughters living w/ me. I try very hard not to seem upset in front of the kids. I'm just rambling on... Glad to hear from anyone, Just to say hi and maybe some kind words.View Thread
I have just been recently diagnosed w/ depression. I went through a very very bad spell about 15 yrs. ago. My family has no understanding of this. I hear things like just pull yourself out of this, This is ridiculous you don't need a Doctor for this,you're just weak. My husband of 30 yrs. has been fighting stage 4 bladder cancer for the last 3 years. Thank God he is cancer free now. I have had custody of my 4 beautiful granddaughters for almost 5 yrs.I lost my kid brother at 46 yrs.old less than a year ago. I haven't even grieved for him yet. Sorry to post so much at one time. I just wanted to know if there is anyone out there to talk to. Thank you for taking the time to read this.View Thread
