Hey, I'm new to this support group and thought I would say hi. I have been dealing with depression for about 8 years, but recently it has gotten really bad. I use to be on medication a few years ago but thought I was better and decided to get off it. Well life takes over and I got married, had a baby and I was always a little depressed but kept thinking that it would get better. I think the post partum combined with my history was not a good mix. I kept telling myself I was fine and tried to brush it off, but now I can't do that anymore. It's so hard to feel the way that I do and my family cannot understand and they all give me their "expert" opinion on what they think I need to do. I have gained a lot of weight also which I know contributes to how I feel. It's starting to get nice out and I like the weather but another part of me hates it because I cannot wear what I use to be able to during the summer months. Sorry for rambling on, I'm just glad I found a community where people can understand how I feel. I decided that I need to get help again, so I made a doctor's appt. tomorrow to get back on some medication. I really hope it helps and I can finally feel like myself again.
