Help! I've been ttc 4 years - miscarriage over 1 year ago. Lately I've been feeling so depressed and can hardly focus at work. This isn't the first time in 4 years, but I can't seem to talk my self out of this one. I feel like I can't keep trying, but I can't stop either. I'm so stressed. I don't know what to do about my depression so that I can function normally. What's worked for you?
P.S. I work for a very small company (4 people), and there's no one at work that would understand. They don't even really know what's going on. It's driving me crazy pretending like I'm normal!View Thread
YES!!! I've been feeling SOOOO tired lately - tired of all the stress - and just downright depressed the last few weeks. So I totally know how you feel!
I have PCOS and we've been TTC almost 4 years - We've had 1 pregnancy (ended in miscarriage at 9 weeks) over a year ago. It took us almost 3 years to get pregnant the first time, and I'm depressed thinking that it's probably going to be another couple of years before I get pregnant again, and then the chances of miscarrying a second time are high enough that I can't help stressing about it! I'm tired of people telling me that having a miscarriage is not that big a deal, and I'll get pregnant again. Seriously, they don't know that!!!
My husband has 7 siblings - all older than him - and they all have beautiful, healthy children (no problems!) - so they really just don't get why it's so hard for us. I'm on the slender side (a-typical PCOS) so they're always implying that it's my fault and that I need to gain some weight. Both his brother and his mother basically said that the miscarriage was my own fault. I feel so alone sometimes. Now that it's been almost 4 years, it's really getting tough to keep a smile on my face when I'm around them, and so now they're starting to think that I'm dragging my husband down with me. I'm so tired and stressed I don't know what to do!View Thread
