When I was a young mother I became severely depressed, to the point of suicide. My kids I think were the ones to suffer the most. No one would listen when I asked for help, my kids became severely neglected, would sit in their own poop for hours, not being fed right. I couldn't get myself off the couch. I was overweight, with thyroid disease, with no support from anyone. I beat myself up over this, Even though they are now 12, 10, and 8. I feel like everything that is wrong with them is my fault. I am fine now and have my thyroid under control and the depression is manageable. Am I alone in this?Answer Question
I'm sorry you went through that, I feel for your children as well. I have been depressed at times in my life but never that extreme. Your definitely not alone, alot of women suffer from depression and anxiety.I hope you feel better if you ever need to talk you can pm me.
