  • First off smoking weed is a depressant so its just making you more depressed, not to mention having drugs in the home with your child there is asking for cps to come grab them and take them from you. Second you will need antidepressents and Im having a hard time understanding why someone against legal medication would be alright with ILLEGAL drugs? You definately need to also look into counseling of some sort. Sounds to me like you have an Addicted personality or Dependant Personality.

  • The only thing wrong with weed is that it is illegal and the thing that is wrong with anti-depresants is that they are not natural and weed has helped people for centuries so back off lady and where the hell do you get the addictive personalty thing OMG talk about judgmental I think that is up to god to decide if someone as bad as you make me seem .

  • I have been doing really well for the last 3 years with depression and I really think it is because of $$ that it is hitting me so hard not to mention the hormones from having the baby =/ plus I have had a lot more back pain lately and have not went back to my PCP for meds yet , I guess I know I need to get a DR appointment for my pain but I am not going back on depression meds and I guess maybe I just need to talk to someone I really don't like talking about how I feel but it is actually really easy on here because its not face to face lol

  • I do agree with answer #1 in that marijuana is a depressant but I do NOT agree with her tone. I won't judge you for your choices because it's not my place. That said, there are several other ways to handle depression that don't involve using any kind of drugs legal or illegal. I have suffered from depression for a while and some of the things that help me are: 1) exercise. You get that adrenaline pumping and it's hard to stay depressed. I know it's extremely hard to get up and do it when your depressed but if you can I suggest you do it. 2) Focusing extra hard on a balanced and healthy diet. 3) Fresh air. 4) doing what you can to help someone else in need. It takes you out of yourself and makes you feel good about yourself. Hope you feel better soon!

  • mrswright1170 .............I have to say you are totally right I forgot how good I feel after I exercise and I actually eat really good lol as for helping others I think that is another reason I am so upset ( I have been helping a lot of my family and today I realized some of them were using me ) but I am deff going to start exercising again tomorrow it will also help with the little bit of baby weight I still have! As for the weed well I love smoking out it does help me although I do know it is a depressant so they say it still has helped me through some tough times and for the record I really don't have an addictive personality lol
