As I read this and each of the other posts, I see that I am not alone, yet it doesn't make me feel less depressed.
I am newly married, have a well paying job that I HATE (huge story there), bills which never seem to go away and I don't see any light (my husband is good with money and says he will get everything paid within 3 years or so, yet I don't see it), and I want to cry often. I try not to say anything to my husband because he gets worried and then he doesn't eat and gets stomach pains. I don't talk to anyone else because I don't want people to think I am just a complainer and or whatever other stigma that goes along with being a woman that is depressed.
I just want to crawl into a ball and never come out--I would but there are people in my life that would be affected (my son, my husband, my family as a whole). If I could be assured that they would be fine would make it easy for me to just seclude myself from life. I take antidepressants, but they just don't seem to work. Sometimes I am fine, but then in a moment I can be the total opposite (sit and just stew over EVERYTHING).
I hate feeling like this and wish I could make it all go away.View Thread
