I've been dealing with depression since I was 12 yrs old now 30 years old. My husband and I have been talking about having a baby. I want one really bad, one of the few things I'm looking forward to in life. I'm worried about my pregnancy and being on antidepressants and my depression moods mixed with pregnancy symptoms. I'm worried about raising the baby and dealing with depression. I was wondering if anyone out their has children and deals with depression could give me some advice.View Thread
I've been dealing with depression since i was 12 yrs old now 30 yrs old. I've had been on so many meds especially the past two years I've lost count. Recently I've started to go to a counselor to talk about my problems I haven't been in a long time . I'm worried that this is my last hope. I have support from my husband and mom lucky. But i still feel alone. I feel like no one understands me. I sleep all the time, have no energy, and deal with many physical and mental symptoms. The past two years I've have had a hard time keeping a job and I'm now unemployed. I don't know what to do anymore. I hate the person I am when I'm depressed.View Thread
I know its not normal to feel the way i do. I wake up and want to go back to sleep because i can't deal with the anxiety of the day. I get so stressed and that causes me to be depressed . I feel I can't do anything right. I hate my liffe and i think about dying all the time . THe only thing thats stops me is my faith in god and my husband and mom . I knowthey would be hurt if I was gone . I hate the way I am and tired every med possibly. I feel hopelesss and also because i don't do much and use food ans an outlet i gained weight and can't stand to look at my self in the mirror . even my husband tells i'm beatuiful i don't feel it . I hate putting my husband and mom through al my pain. But i don't how to feel anything else. I'm almost 30 years and have already dealt with depression since i was 12 years old . I feel like i don't want i'm sick of dealing with and don't to live the rest of my adult life like this . Help me someone cause i feel alone in the way i think.View Thread

I have delat with depression for so long i have a hard time fighting to get better anymore now at age 29 i feel like most of my life i 've been dealing with the since i was 12. i like a lifetime has gone by trying to fight and i'm only 29. I feel like why should i want to continue when at 30, 40, 50 or older i will have to still deal with the pain. i'm not happy anymore and have no interest in anything. If it weren't for my mom and my husband and my faith in god. I probably would of killed myself but i don't cause i know the pain of that wou;d hurt them to be without me. I don't know what to do i try med after med and nothing works. I don't know if i should see a therpist for talk therpy .

No you can't just sanp out of it. I've had depression since i was age 12 thats 17 years now. Some times are better than other sometimes meds work or therpy. Sometimes like this past year its been horrible no meds are working longterm for me, I've been on 7 different meds this and now on a new one. But I have hope cause depression comes and goes som people take a med or only have it once in your life others have it long. I've had many doctors and thepists tell me I will always struggle with it. Sometimes i feel why should i hope or fight to get better cause i'l alwasy have to deal with depression. But in my heart i have hope i focus on my faith in god and the people who do try to understand me the closet people to me my husband and mom. You need to find someone or a few who at least tries to understand no one will completely understand unless you have depression too. But somepeople will try you need people like that in you r life also something that give you hope and get you through the tough times my faith is what gets me through . you can do yoga, exercise , mediatio or pray something or aything that gives you some purpose to get you through. If you doctor doesn't understand you then i suggest you find a theapist thats specializes in depression and also makes you feel comfortable. My hope is that you fid a great doctor and some people that understand youView Thread
