  • Is there someone you can talk to ? Maybe a counselor to help you deal with your depression. My best suggestion to you is to NOT handle it on your own. Confide in your SO , or a good family member. Try to remember that depression is not your fault but it is hard to deal with and cope.

  • talk to someone-- if you have a church you belong to they ofter offer free services-- I did that for a while and I have to say even when in discussion if I disagreed with my Pastor he didnt get mad or PO or anything he just try to help me get to a point I was comfortable

  • I take a fish oil supplement(takes up to 6wks to kick in). I played w/ the dose and I take 3x what the bottle says. With that I made it through my 3rd pregnancy & post pardom time for the first time w/out anti-depressents. Another thing you can do is exercise, arobic. When I went off my zoloft after my 2nd son I had to exercise 1hr daily till I evened out. Missing 1 day was like missing a pill.

  • it can also be related to a food sensitivity. look into nutritional response testing(I paid $45 for that)
