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!

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.
