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.
