 Well, My Name is Stefanie and I am 32 years old. I am original from Germany. I met my Husband over there while he was stationed close to my hometown. We're married for almost 12 years and have 3 children. Alexis (11), Emily (7) and Lukas (2). In 2008 we moved to the states, which was a first time for me and I really like it here. I had PPD with my 2DD and was in the hospital twice within 6 month. After DS was born I started to have symptoms for ppd again . I started medication again and went to counseling. End of 2010 we moved from Ga to Co, where I was in the hospital for Depression again. Recently I had a psych evaluation and was diagnosed with Dysthima (sp?) and Borderline personality Disorder. I just started to see another Therapist just for borderline to do DBT therapy. Don't know much about, but I know it's gonna be a long road. If you want to know more you always can go on my homepage.

Hi.  I'm 38 y/o.  Been depressed for as long as I can remember.  Counceling down't totally work for me.   I don't trust them.  I have attempted suicide, been locked up (that made  it worse), and been on drugs for it forever ....  I am a stepmom to two boys 14y/o and almost 17 y/o.  My husband is terminally ill with a rare disease with no real treatment.  That's me in a nut shell .  At least my first layer LOL

HAve you tried to talk to your dh, not in a confrontational way, but about your feelings and you wondering if he is doing it because of the signs you see.  I am pretty isolated myself and found this group to be very helpful for that.

Maybe try a prenatal yoga class to get out and meet other people.

Welcome, I have ptsd from domestic violence and sexual assault. I;m sorry he abused the kids.  Forgivness is something I am working on. the one part I get is that fogiveness is releasing yourself and making peace with the past so that you can move on, not telling the other person it was okay.

feel free to jump in anywhere, we are a very supportive group of women.

Weclome to the group. There are a lot of supportive ladies here. Check our sticky thread on book reccomendations they may help.  Ive been in and out of the hospital like it was a revolving door in the past.  I know how frustrating it can be that the treatment doesn't work as well as it should.

I am sorry for your DH's illness.
