I've been on JM for a while on the TTC forum but in this one I'm new. Hope I get to know the amazing women on here.
Well, about me,
My name is Jenny and DH is Anthony who is 25 yrs old. He's a veteran of the USMC and I'm a Housing Manager.
I am 23 yrs old, college student, wife to Anthony for 6+ yrs and not a mother...we are in the process of ttc.
I'm here because even though I have not been diagnosed by a doctor I know I'm suffering from depression. Possibly clinical depression.
I feel sad all the time, everything irritates me, I dont enjoy the things that i used to do before like reading and writing poetry. I've gained 20 pounds in a few months, I cant sleep unless is with a sleeping aid, I FEEL extremely alone, my memory is doing horrible and I'm very indecisive. Also, ive pushed everyone out of my life and i have no energy to deal with life. This is pretty hard and my mental health is not very good. Suicide is NOT an option because I believe in God. I am seeking professional help but is still hard.
I just feel so alone.
But I'm sorry for ranting but I needed to. Thank you for reading this. Any advice?
music helped me, walking, joining a gym if you have the money or seeing if a friend has bring guest for free. never let yourself stay home to much, always try to get sun even when its cold. like try to walk around the block for 20 mins. i have bipolar and all this stuff helps me. plus having good friends to talk to. best of luck to you. hang in there. use coping stragities like this will pass, theses feelings are what i feel now, but they arent going to get me down. postive affirmations, journal! try to write what you feel good about, what is bothering you, what you can do and remember fight the fear of depression taking control and you can get through it! god is the main answer i believe pray pray pray...
