Do you ever feel like you need drugs or alcohol to get through the day? I do.

I am ashamed to say that I feel like my life would be easier to manage if I were slightly drunk all day or high on Ativan...which I have for panic attacks (that are rare). I haven't touched one in months...

It's getting to the point where I have an alcoholic drink every night before bed...

I was diagnosed with depression several years ago, I've been on and off meds. I'm slowly trying to get back on them right now. I have two children under the age of two and every day feels like a slow, lingering nightmare. I love them dearly and treat them like gold but I feel myself slipping under the ice...

My husband says I try to do too much around the house like 'supermom' but I do it because I'm so afraid of ever being called 'lazy'. One of my children will be in school during the day in 3 years time but I feel like I don't know how to get by until then.

If one isn't crying or screaming, the other is...I know that's the way it goes but I can barely handle it. Yes I have family a couple of hours away to help out but that doesn't help me in the long term, it's just temporary help. Has anyone been here before? 

I am normal for feeling this way?!

Yes, I have been there. You need to get on your medication and stay on it. I would take my medication until I felt better and then quit taking it. It is now my husband's job to ask me about it every single night.

Sometimes I feel pot would be pretty handy to have around. There have been days at a time where I am just in a complete funk and cannot for the life of me escape it. My days are basically the same day in and day out. That's as far as I would ever go though.

I would never pop pills or become an alky. ( I can't stomach booze )

That's what I used to do..on and off them cold turkey..I know it's bad I don't know why I did it. My husband wouldn't do that for me I don't think..

Drugs as in??

If I did not take my prescribed meds i'd be in bed feeling like death unable to move the slightest bit without crying.  But it's all needed for reason therefore I take every pill just to function.

I've never been one to drink.  No, I will not judge anyone who does so as long as you are drinking responsibly in case an emergency arises.  I'm personally afraid to mix alcohol with my meds as I take a lot of strong narcotics and depression meds.

Typically people who do not know what it's like to deal with something does not understand therefore they call others lazy or whatever.  Let's hope they are never faced to circumstances that you and i are only dealing!

Chin up :)  It's gonna be okay <3

It can be normal, you just need to talk to a doctor and get on meds. I am on Xanax as needed. I don't take them very often, but sometimes, with 4 kids under 6, you just need one to keep calm.

Thank you so much for your compassion and love, I really appreciate it. I hope my meds make me feel better once I get on the full dose.

I stay sober and just accept the way things are.
