    Made a new realization over the weekend

    I I came to a realization this weekend, that I believe I might be ddepressed... I have not felt like myself since I had my son 3 yrs ago. But life has been roler coaster, I kept thinking my feelings were because of certain situations... I need to seek help now, because I believe I will soon loose my family if I don't do so now... how can I be feeling like this...if I have everything in life I have ever wanted???

    Depression doesn't always follow what our life circumstances are. Sometimes it is there despite a good life or good family or good health, etc.
    I wonder, did you have post partum depression after your son was born? I wonder if that was what started the cycle. I'd get to your doctor, talk to him or her about it, and see a therapist. I hope soon you can get to a better place.

    I truly believe I did have post pardum.... I wasn't able to enjoy him as much as I wanted to, back then... I did know something was wrong but again I just pushed it away. I am currently trying to get into my doctor to see what we can work on. Thank you!
    JessicaPon replied to niteflier's response:
    My fiance feels like it's his doing making me feel depressed. Like Im not happy at home with him... he said I am so distant and show no love or affection. I tried to explain its NOT him but hes hurting as much as I am.
