  • I'm very sorry that you feel this way. :[
    It's something that you can bring up with your OB, at least, see what options you have.

    There's some outside activities you can do - I hear that sunlight boosts your "happy cells."
    Maybe just focus on the things that make you happy!

    If you need a friend to talk to you, you can certainly send me a message too. :]
    I'll do my best.
