I think I'm clinically depressed. Not sure. I'm already on meds for anxity/ depression.
My OB put me on alprazolam for a month. I don't see it helping. I feel like I can't keep going like this anymore. I'm loosing it. I get made really fast ,yell and snap for no reason. Ive had lots of suicide thoughts but there's no way I would.leave my.son and.hubby. also this has affected my feelings/ attitude toward my husband. He is a good hardworking man. Always. Gone working. He has a 6 days a week job than cuts grass on the side so hes really never home. But I feel like i have no passion at all for. Him and I know I love him but I feel like I just live with him. I hope you know what I mean , I can't really explain that feeling. We are always fighting about.something lately because. I blow things up and make a big deal when there not. I have.no friends and stay in this house almost 24/7 so I'm sure that don't.help. sometimes I don't even feel like dealing with my baby. I feel like taking him to a family member that will take wonderful care of him and check myslef out!

 hugs! if you feel like your meds aren't working how they are supposed to, have a talk with your doctor. A lot of people have to experiment a lot to get the right medication(s). can you and the baby get out of the house and go for a walk or go to the mall or something?

Yeah some depends if my hubby will let me and if we have any gas. If not that I'm stuck here because I don't get money.

You need to talk to a doc, regardless of if DH will "let" you.  Its vital for your heath.  Please talk to your doc about what is going on.  They can help, or at least try their best to get you the care you need.

your med is just for anxiety. there is nothing in it for depression. you need to go back and talk to your dr and tell him you think you need something for depression and tell him all your symptoms. just like you told us. there is nothing to be afaid of. dont put it off so you dont get any worse. good luck! let us know what happens.

Cymbalta is one I've heard of but not used (I used them years back, so that's not a surprise). I hope it helps. Remember, it will probably take a couple/few weeks for it to properly kick in.

I hope it helps you! If it doesn't start helping or things get worse, please call back and they can help you more.

Getting out of the house is one thing they told all of us I know with these issues. Even just getting outside (ideally in the sun) and going for a short walk.
