depression

I am so depressed and not sure what to do? I have never felt this way to this extent. I had to quit school and am having issues finding a job and adpting to being home. I have 3 kids. I contemplate suicide but know my kids need me so please do not bash me! Sometimes I feel they would be better if I just leave. My So and me are not really getting along and I feel misserable. We are trying to make it work but I wonder when I should give up?I am worried about how I feel emotionally and I have not told him I am this depressed!I am lonely and just keep it all bottled up. I know if I don't talk I can't expect him or others to help.If you have been through these feelings what did you do? I have no help with the kids sitter wise and I contemplated calling one of those help lines today:(

  • I got so depressed after my last pregnancy I tried to kill myself. No one would believe it now as I hide it well. I had to go to counseling for 8 months. That I did have to admit to everyone so I could get time off work. Needless to say I learned a lot about myself and I feel so much better now. Do not hestitate to seek help. You do not deserve to endure alone. Let your husband know and set time to see someone. I finally went when I called my sister and I was cryng but could not speak to her. She gave me a place to call. I never told my sister what was going on but am so glad she knew what to tell me.

  • please call the hotline and find out where to find counseling and a doc. maybe you need meds and there is no shame in that.
    the shame is in not asking for help when you know you need it . (hugs) hang in there honey you are not alone.
