I've been very depressed lately... it comes and goes, some days are better. I told my doctor it wasn't every day, but now that I think about it, it is every day, usually not all day.
I am on medication... My dr said I'm on the max dosage for my meds. Even though my old psychiatrist told me I could go higher...
I don't really have anyone to talk to. It's REALLY hard for me to talk about my feelings... and I'm very closed off. I have a hard time letting people in. I have like 2 friends... but I rarely see them. Because of our schedules, and the other moved.
I just feel very very down... I want to be happy.
I don't want to do anything, go anywhere... I'm depressed that I don't have friends, but I don't want to socialize. I have to force myself to do stuff... I'm irritable. idk what to do

finding support is essential - maybe join and art class while your child is in day care. get out of the house. find a hobby. soon you will meet new ppl and start some fun socializing. its a slow process but v rewarding.
I'm sorry you aren't feeling well Karie. Is there a reason you couldn't go back to your old psychiatrist to get on a higher dosage of medicine? Does sunshine help? Everything I've read says that women with depression VERY often have low vitamin D levels, perhaps you could add supplements? We're here to listen, and I'm glad you posted!
I saw my new doctor the other day and she said she's testing me for Vit D deficiency through bloodwork.... so it's worth to get your vitamin deficiency test to check out.
hang in there! I've been there!
