I've been very emotional lately

I seem to be more emotional and irritable towards the end of the day. I have a lot going on in my personal life. I'm losing my home. My son is being deployed overseas to iraq, and my daughter is in another state and abuses drugs. I feel overwhelmed. I stay in my PJ's most of the time unless I have to get dressed to run to the store or go out. I don't feel like doing anything. Could I be depressed?

  • It sounds a lot like depression. I would see a doctor asap because it can get very serious if not taken care of. GL and I hope you feel better soon. (HUGS)

  • Yes, you sound like me when my son was deployed. You should talk to your dr. about everything your going through and maybe he'll prescribe something for you to help. I'm sorry things are going bad for you :( I do feel your pain.

  • Yes, you need somebody to talk to, a doctor. You have a lot of things going on and at this time it is to much for you to handle. You really need to get some professional help ASAP. Just take one day at a time, that is all you can do. I wish you luck and much hugs.

  • Well if your feeling depressed you have every right to feel that way for all you are going through right now...a normal human emotion. I hope you have someone you can talk to that you can trust. ...your mom maybe or a good friend...push yourself and get out of the house... exercise does wonders for stress....I am sure you don't feel like it right now...but if you push yourself to get out and walk at least... I can pretty much guarantee it will help some. Talk to God...tell him all your problems...pray about them...maybe even try going to church... you could meet some nice friends there too... and people that would want to help you.

  • I am so sorry for all you are going through. I would certainly see a dr ASAP. I know alot of us are going through a lot of personal things and the Holiday's don't seem to help with depression either. I urge you to see your family dr soon. GL!

  • Well sweetie, I got depressed just reading what you are going through. I think you are & you are entitled. You have sooo much going on and most of it isn't positive. Try to have faith that it will become positive in the long run, that is what I do A LOT! It may be a good idea to get out more often; being cooped out can be depressing. Things WILL get better-you must believe!!!!!!!!!!!!!
