So, here I am, still, on the fence. I had a bad week and actually did call to make an appointment, then called back to cancel. I agonized over it and just kept going over the pros and cons. One big CON is that I'd have to leave my kids with my MIL who I just .....well, you know.... She's actually great with them and my #1ds loves her--I just have such a hard time with it--but that is a whole other story, and probably not the real reason I cancelled. Still have my unfilled Zoloft prescription from my GP, and still haven't talked about it with DH (the prescription or the appointment I made then cancelled).

So, anyway, how would I know if this is actually a "no-fault" clinical depression, or if I am just going through some self-pity, or having a bad attitude? I can't really explain what I mean here. I don't know ... I woldn't really change anything about my life. I love my husband and kids, being a SAHM...we have a nice life. So, it isn't that I hate what I am doing (tho' of course I'd like more "me time"). By all rights, I should be happy--instead, I'm just irritable, angry, and have no interest in anything. Maybe it is just my personality??

Does anyone follow me here??

Hey there,
I'm kinda on the fence right now too. Life is great, my birth was beyond my wildest dreams, the kids are heatlhy, Dh's job has a promising future (finally) we are getting a new car, going to start saving for a house, I have new dipes in my stash, well you get the picture. But I've been cranky and irritable and yelling at the kids all the time. I have not been pretty to live with lately, I do believe. I don't know whats up wtih me these days.
I wish I had more advice but I do totally understand what you are saying.
