    My depression

    I’ve been really going through it lately and I have no idea why... all I want to do is cry, I haven’t been eating lately all I want to do is sleep but can’t do that with a full time job and being a mommy of a 2-year old.. and I keep thinking my family would be better off if I wasn’t around and my daughter would have a better life without me.. I feel like I have no idea what I’m doing as a mother I feel like my fiancé is falling out of love with me even tho she keeps telling me she’s not but I can’t help but think it and when I try to talk to her about it she gets all mad at me and i think it’s all my fault everything is and always has been... I feel like I have hit rock bottom and I have no idea what I’m doing with my life I’m not myself at all...

    I'm sorry that you are struggling so much - depression is really hard to go through!

    You didn't mention if you are taking medication or seeing a therapist? If not, consider what you would do if you had a physical ailment. You would likely go see your doctor, yes? Equally , when you are struggling with depression and you can't get a hold on it, you need to see the kind of doctor who treats mental health issues, i.e. a Psychiatrist for a possible diagnosis and meds if needed, and a therapist for someone who you can talk with and learn new strategies mentally, emotionally, and behaviorally. It's amazing what therapy and meds (if needed) can do if you're willing to put in the work! I could not have survived without my meds and therapist!

    So if you're aren't already, please consider seeing a professional who can help you get back on your feet rather than continuing to drown in your depression, yes?

    It will get better, but you also need to seek professional help!
