Regardless if you are clinically depressed or not, every mom knows you need some time for just you. It honestly took me a while to get things figured out.
I would definitely try the meds again. And I also agree with lexismom. Take your husband to the appointment with you. As far as the in-laws go, you could try putting them in their place by asking them where they got their medical degrees. It usually stumps my in-laws, to be honest.
I would also try talking to your husband about scheduling a much needed date night. As stressed as you are, don't forget that your husband is also getting stressed. You could get your in-laws to watch the kids for a few hours. Maybe, your in-laws will see how much, even though you love them to death, your kids can drive you up the wall. If the date night is a success, try to have one every other week. This way, when you're feeling really low, you and your husband have something to look forward to.View Thread
