Depression Support Center Depression Support Center

 Hi everyone! My name is Brittany and I am 24 years old. I have 2 kids. My daughter is 6 and my son is almost 4 months. I am in a relationship with my son's father and we live in WV. I am also a SAHM and he works for an oil company.

 Heres alittle about my depression...I have suffered from depression for as long as I can remember. In my teens I used to be a cutter:/ I haven't done that anytime recently but sometimes I still have urges too. After I had my son my depression has gotten worse and it took me a little while but I finally feel like somewhat of myself again. I am on meds,but sometimes I feel as though they don't wotk. I feel like no one gets it. In the past year my anxitey has reached a level that somedays it controls my life. :( I feel like the only thing that keeps me going is my kids...like if it wasn't for them I wouldn't even care if I was here or not.

Well I hope to get to know you all very soon. I love and always in need of meeting new people and making new friends!

 I'm sorry your dr. doesn't believe you that you have anxiety. I think I would switch doctors, that's just not cool for you to feel anxiety, and your dr. not want to help you. Ya, that would piss me off, my dr. doesn't know exactly how I feel, nobody does except me, and for your dr. to not believe you, that just isn't right.

 No i have been fighting with my dr about it for awhile. they dont believe i have anxiety...and I KNOW I do!

Quoting ashleighmama:

 You wanted to know how I deal with the anxiety. I take meds, I know that helps, but sometimes when the anxiety is bad even WITH the meds., sometimes I have to talk myself through things. i know that sounds weird, but sometimes it works. I literally have to say things like ''come on Ash, you can do this, you CAN get through this". Things like that, of course, not in public, but hubby has heard me, I just tell him to ignore it. He's been with me long enough to know that sometimes that's what I have to do. Do you take anything for the anxiety?

Quoting KamisMommysGirl:

 thank you! If I may ask how do you deal with your anxiety....because mostly thats what makes me feel like total crap all the time?

Quoting ashleighmama:
