Toxic relationship "cause" more severe depression??

I'm with my daughters (age 5) father.
I can't "get out" at this time. Financially, lack of family to rely on& afraid of custody battle. But any ideas how to fight this depression while I'm stuck? Just need support that I will be ok. Thanks

For one don't smapoutit, you are having the same thoughts with people as 98% of us just don't associate with those type of people. Always be honest with yourself and others if negativity really bothers you in a nice way let the person know. Plus the person is probably going through things of their own which talking about it with them could possibly help!!

Call a depression hotline explain your situation and they can give you resources to help you get out of a bad environment.

I understand, I'm in the same boat. Right now is okay cause I just had surgery and he has to take care of me. I go to therapy, see my p doc and go to a support group called NAMI. Just taking it day by day.
