    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Ive been searching for a cheap counseling service a lot lately and no one seems to have that going on... I desperately need the advice and help of a professtional at least once a week and cant do that at $50-$120 a pop.... thats just too much for me.... If anyone knows of even a online service that can help me id appreciate the input... until then i will vent here and maybe there is someone out there that can help me! Im 27 years old and finally admitting to the fact that ive been extremely depressed for a very long time.... I constantly have something stressful on my mind, i cry every single day, im always angry, sad, tired, irritable, and almost never happy. Im a stay at home mother of 2 and I cant live like this anymore. I dont know what to do or where to turn. My options are pretty limited... but im gonna do what i can to get away from this feeling! Ive never felt so useless, worthless and hopeless in my life.

    Hi Anon
    Welcome to this community, I hope you get the support and advice you are looking for.
    You are welcome here to vent anytime, that is why we are all here, to share our experiences and feelings without fear of being judged or belittled for the way we think/feel.
    I am sorry you are feeling so bad at the moment, it sounds like you have been feeling this way for a while now, well done on realising you are depressed and that it is the depression which is making you feel the way you are, it is not something that you have done wrong, you are not useless, worthless or hopeless, you have an illness and you can get better.
    Keep posting and let us know how you are doing.
