Hi, I'm new here.  *waves*  I'm Brandy, a 29-year-old happily married mommy of 3.  I'm no stranger to depression, I was diagnosed when I was 16.  I've been on many different meds, and tried therapy many times.  Looking forward to learning some new coping skills and making some friends who understand.

Hi- I'm older than you by 10+ years, but also have 3 kids about the ages of yours and have been depressed since I was about 17 on and off. Hope you stick around and share your wisdom.
