should sahms be able to have depression/anxiety? EDIT
I got pregnant right out of high school and learned how to keep my depression, anger, and cutting under control for my son's sake. Now I have my 2nd son and I cut myself a few weeks ago . I'm very ashamed of myself and have zero self confidence.My anxiety is sky high and my depression is no longer manageable without meds. It seems as tho my marriage isn't goinf well, although I do feel happy in it at times. My mother in law is very manipulative so that's why we argue the majority of the time. I'm just so depressed. I've began to see a psycologist and a psyciatrist.
I just want to know what you all think.Should a samh be able to have depression/anxiety issues? I try and talk to my best friend about it and she just doesnt get it. She says I shouldn't be feeling this way when I have all I could ever want. My dh makes more than enough. We have no major bills except for mortgage. We travel a lot. And the main thing is that I get to stay home with my boys. Idk what to think anymore and how to snap out of it. I'm ashamed of being depressed and having anxiety attacks. I just don't know how to stop feeling this way. :(
Sorry for the typos, I'm mobile...
Edit- I just want to thank everyone that has responded to my post, especially for the lady that actually looked up and posted a bunch of help numbers!!
Of course I feel as tho everyone is entitled to feel the way they feel. I was just having a real bad day and the fact that I feel as tho no one around me thinks i SHOULD be depressed according to them bexause I am a sahm and have everything I could want Is just hard to deal with . I am in therapy and taking meds which I feel isn't helping me, but I will not give up. I want to be the person who I used to be and I will. Thank you so much to everyone who has taken their time to pray for me and everyone who has reaponded to my post. I feel better knowinf I'm not alone in mt feelings.
