Hello!  I'm Jade; I'm a military wife and a stay at home mom.  I've been married for 10.5 years.  My kids are a 14 year old daughter and an 8 year old son.

I've never actually been diagnosed with depression, but I suspect I have some form of it.  I've even occasionally wondered if I'm bipolar or manic depressive.  I have a doctor's appointment in a few weeks, and I'm going to talk to her about it.  Being a military wife can make the whole doctor thing a pain in the butt; moving every 3-4 years isn't condusive to consistent medical care.

That's me in a nutshell.  If you want to know anything else, feel free to ask.  =)

welcome to the group. it may take a couple of appointments to get a diagnosis.  think of the times when you've been depressed and use descriptive words with the doc, the same with any manic times you may have had.  good luck! let us know how it goes :)
