Since there isn't one here, I decided to start a support thread as a place where people can come vent, share feelings, ask for support, etc. Please feel free to jump in anytime and keep us updated on your progress, what treatments you're trying, etc.
I'm having a really, really rough time right now, myself. My depression and anxiety are the worst they've ever been, to the point where I would probably go to a hospital if it weren't for my young daughter. I'm seeing a psychiatrist, who I like, who is trying very hard to find the right combination of medications for me. Right now I'm taking a lot of medicine, and it's helping some, but not enough yet. I work FT outside the home, and it's really been hard to function there, to the point where I feel like I need a leave of absence, but I'm the only breadwinner in the family right now, so that's really not an option. I feel bad because I feel like I'm not being a good enough mother to my daughter, who has special needs. I also feel bad because my house is so out of control. I just can't find the energy to clean, organize, etc.
Trust me, you don't want this to be a blog about me , so jump in here and tell us how you're doing.
