    More emotional after giving birth

    I know I should probably post this on the pregnancy board but there’s so much spam there I decided to go to the 2nd best board. I gave birth to my first child in early November. I’ve noticed that ever since I gave birth the smallest tragedies get me all teary eyed and crying. A few days after giving birth my friend shared a comic strip about a dog being abandoned and dying and I started crying and had little crying moments for the next few days. Sometimes I’m driving and see a dead cat in the middle....

    Lack of focus

    I am not sure what type of doctor I need to go to for the mental health issues I have been experiencing for many years but have been to embarrassed to go to see someone about them. I started my dream job and am now afraid I will lose it because of my lack of focus and not being able to sit still and am exhausted. I have been like this for years even in high school but I guess never wanted to think something was wrong with me. Any advice if I can go to just my regular doctor or is there someone else....

    Really bad time

    I suffer from major depression/bipolar, anxiety, OCD, and a host of other health issues. I will say winter in the Midwest is the worst time for my depression. Along with the depression I have daily chronic migraines. Between these 3 issues my life is totally miserable lately, or past few weeks. I go as ling as a week without a shower, rarely get out of PJ's, no interest in any thing. Since I am a bit OCD, the minor things around my apt do get done each day. Taking care of my pets, dishes, litter....

    First post

    I don't even know where to start. Depression runs in my family and when I was a teenager and into early adulthood I never really understood it. I remember telling my sister who has been dealing with depression since teenage years " why can't you just be happy?" Now I know exactly what she has been going through. The negative outlook on life. The I can't shake this! I'm better then this. I won't give in and admit to this disease. Then comes the excessive eating, sluggish....

    What do you do if nothing helps treat your depression?

    Hi, first time posting. I just joined. I hope this isn’t too long. I’m 34. Ive had problems with anxiety since 3, depression since 14. Both come and go. However, this last episode started 3 years, triggered by a bad breakup. I had a mental breakdown, and can’t seem to get my life back. I’m talking like, you don’t know how to get dressed in the morning, you don’t know how to go out of the house, function? I go months without going anywhere but therapy bc of crippling social anxiety. I can’t look in....

    Cannot self care

    For the last 2 months I am slipping into a place where I have no interest in self care, ie basic hygiene nor do I clean my house. In my worst depressed states, I have never been this bad. I cannot find a reason for my behavior & anything to convince me to change. I need help to understand what/why I'm doing this. Thank you

    Family struggles

    Hi. I am a college student who is back home for holidays. I have depression but my family has decided to completely ignore my illness. They act like I am not sick. I find myself crying and hurting with no comfort or support from my family. This hurts me as I have nowhere to turn to. I am feeling really miserable.
