Hello, my name is Carrie and I am new to the group and Cafemom.  I have recently been oficially diagnosed with Major Depression, Mood Disorder, and ADHD (although I have been on meds for depression for 13 years).  I have 3 children, all boys - the oldest is 7 and my twins are 3 1/2.  I recently just went through a very difficult depressive period and although I am feeling better I am happy to have found this group.  I have been looking for somewhere to find support.  My husband is awesome, but sometimes it is hard to talk to someone who has not felt what I feel.  I am working on getting medicated for the ADHD which I think should help a lot, however my blood pressure is too high.  The dr. won't let me start it until it comes down :(  Knowing that this goes way back into my family history, I also worry about my boys, specifically my oldest who shows similiar personality traits that I have and had as a child. 

Also, having these issues and going through pregnancy and being a mom is not easy.  I am also happy to be here as a support for other moms who need a listening ear.

Welcome, Carrie.  : )  I have three boys, too, but they are all grown now.  When are you due?

 are they giving you something for your blood pressure and trying to get it down that way? i used to take something for adhd and found out i was tachacardic and had to quit taking it because it was a stimulant. my head was clearer then than it has ever been. i hope your pressure comes down and you can get on something for your adhd.

Hey Carrie!  My name is Kelly and I too suffer from depression.  I just started taking meds and I hate them.  I feel dizzy and anxious and sometimes I feel like my husband is looking at me like I am from space.  There is that awesome cycle of guilt that comes with depression.   Just wanted to say hi, and feel free to chat with me anytime.  I like the company.

Hi! Welcome to the group!  I too worry about my kids. My oldest son who will be 9 next week is very sensitive, much the way I was, and still am. My youngest, who is 3 has these out of control temper tantrums that make me wonder if they are normal or not.
