I'm 25 and I 5 months pregnant. I was diagnoised with depression tow years ago. This is my first child. I can't handle the depression and the pregnancy I have alot of sucidial thougths. What makes my depression worse is that I have no support from anyone. My family isn't worth talking too and my bf doesn't know what to do. I see a therapist but that only helps so much. I refuse to take my meds due to the pregnancy. I don't want the baby I want to put her up for adoption but I can't handle that I'm scared I'm going to hurt myself. I'm really trying its just so hard. I have no money and PA is taking so long and I quit my job due to my depression so I have nothing and no one.Answer Question

Please DO NOT put your baby up for adoption. If you feel suicidal now, being a birth mother will put you right over the edge. Why do you refuse to take your meds because of pregnancy? Have you talked to the prescribing doctor about this? If not please do so. There may be other things you can take. It may be worse for your baby if you do not take your meds than if you do.
I'm so sorry your family are unsupportive. You may find support from other sources. Please seek it. Huggs!!

Thank you all for your support. I'm going to talk to my dr on tuesday. I don't take meds b/c I'm scared the meds are going to hurt my baby. I don't wanna take that chance. I have talked to my dr about them and he told me they were ok but I'm still scared to take them. I feel better knowing that I'm not completly alone. I'm considering adoption I'm just scsred of these suicidial thoughts :(
