Hey everyone. I'm a 25 year old single mother to a 5 year old. we practice week on week off visitation. I have been "depressed" for the past year now and I'm not sure why or how to treat it. I have seen the Dr. before and the medicines that I have tried never worked. the past couple months now I have been experiencing worse symptoms. I haven't been working as much because I feel weak, tired, "sick", headaches, nausea, etc. Im scared to go back to my dr and get on medicine again. I am not suicidal, or think about suicide. I'm just not sure if I'm actually depressed or if it's anxiety.
I have loss of interested in working, hanging out with friends, working out, or doing any physical activities. Sometimes when I get out of bed I don't even what to get into the shower, or do my make up or my hair.
if you have any questions that might help you help me please ask. I don't want to feel this way any more. I want to get my life back on track and get back into a routine.
