So I guess the thing that I've been pretty depressed for like, a really long time. I am pretty sure that I've just always been depressed. I used to try to get help when I was a teenager, I told my parents I needed to see a therapist and everything... but I don't think that they could deal with something being wrong with me because my brother was such a handful and a screw up, they just needed me to be "ok" so they refused to believe that I needed help.
Last night, I don't know why or how it came up, I can't even remember, but for some reason I confessed to my husband that I'm depressed and I have been for as long as I can remember. It was bad timing, it was late at night and he was exhausted. I don't know why I brought it up. He got really angry with me, and told me that I need to fix it. I love him, and I love my son, I'm just not sure I love myself. He seemed to be really mad about it. Any advice?

Men can be cruel about things like this. Go see your regular doctor just to get the ball rolling. Tell him or her exactly what's going on and take it from there. You might want to find someone else to be your rock right now because a lot of men just don't get it. To this day (it has been 3 years of this) if I'm in a bad mood my dh will say, "Did you take your pill?"....ugggg....... Obviously depression is WAYYYY more than taking a pill, but he'll never get it.
