I'm new to this and not sure what to expect. I have been suffering from depression for about 18 years now. I think it started first after the birth of my first daughter. What should have been a happy time was a time of sadness. I have been in therapy on and off and have been taking medication. I asked my therapist last week if she thought I was getting better...I was second guessing myself. I kidded with her in that I should find a virtual friend because I don't have anyone I can really talk to. My husband thinks I should just snap out of it. He doesn't understand an illness that isn't physical. It's hard...my kids don't help matters any either. They are all about themselves. I give and give and give and often times get not much back in return. Anyone else ever been in this situation? How did/do you work through it? I've been journaling again but sometimes I can't write as fast as my mind is going so I get frustrated and stop short of getting out what I feel I need to.
