I used to be depressed, back a few years ago for some time. I have been off my medication for well over a year now, as my thyroid is getting back to normal (hypothyroidism can cause depression).
This pregnancy, I'm stressed out. My husband has been a pain in my ass lately, not pregnancy related. He's going through health issues of his own and we've been fighting and it's straining us big time.
I'm doing so well in school, I want to drop out though. I have no want for it anymore. No motivation--it's gone.
My kids are my life and I love them and I have such a hard time getting out of bed in the morning even for them.
I cry all the time, every day at least 2 or 3 times a day.
I don't know what to do though. I don't want to take medication while pregnant. I know I'm having issues again and I hate feeling this way. I just want to know I'll be myself again and it's so hard.
I don't want to make huge mistakes, like dropping out of college. I have a 3.94 GPA and it'd be such a shame to drop out. I just can't keep up with the work. I have no energy or desire to do it right now.
What should I do? See about counceling maybe? I know for sure I will not take medication in my pregnancy.
