Hi! My name is Haley and I have 3 kids, a daughter who will be 13 next month, and 2 sons, a 9 year old and 15 month old.  I have battled mild depression off and on since I started having children...or maybe I did have it as a young child and going through my teen years into adulthood.  ANyways, it's manageable and I actually don't rely on medicine...I have accepted that my personality tends to be more somber at times and I use exercise and just trying to look on the bright side to help.  I have taken medicine in the past but I don't like the side effects.  I am glad I have found a place to talk about my feelings :)

Welcome.  This is a nice group to see how other people handle their depression. For me it's good to know that other people do feel the same as me.  I think I have more social anxiety & mild depression.  One of these days I'll go see a professional & really fess up to it & maybe get something better than my own self help.  Hope you like it, it's probably my favorite group here on cm.

I really don't know what lays ahead but for now, managing it without medicine is working. I constantly have to change my mindset, to think of positive things and to realize being sad at times is a part of life. Billionclicks.org is a great site for getting one to focus on blessings

I think....I know I suffer from social anxiety which doesn't help. I have been called reclusive. I can go days without seeing anyone other than my husband and kids, and I am terrible with answering the phone. Its like I want to be left alone but then I feel left out too and I hate it. But I don't know how to fix it.
