hi everyone, im Jessica, im 20. Im married, not so happily sometimes and I have an 8 month old son Zachary, and another on the way in August I guess. On and off through my teen years I felt a little depressed, and when I got pregnant with my son it got bad. I was on bedrest from 19-37 weeks, and suspected thats why I was so depressed. I thought things would be fine after I had the baby, then postpartum depression hit me HARD. So much is just spinning around me now. Ive got bad anxiety, my moods are like a rollercoaster. Im on a few meds, and seeing a therapist, nothing seems to help. I feel like im miserable ALL the time. My meds have been changed several times, nothing has helped me. My marriage is completely going to crap and my relationship with my son is horrilble, I just have no patience or energy to deal with ANYTHING! Its so frustrating. Anyways, thats just a bit of background on me, hope to meet some of you soon!

hi Jessica ... first of all ... Welcome to the board ... great to have you here and I'm glad you felt comfortable to share yourself with us

I'm Lisa mom to Sabrina (almost 14) and Adam (12) ... I'm bipolar with generalised and social anxiety and also insomniac

I too had depression while in school though I've only been properly diagnosed in the past THREE years ... and I'm now 38 so check that out

The meds changing might seem frustrating for you and yes I agree ... it is ... I've been on anything I can think about and up to recently as in the last month my AD was changed yet again

You may also have PPD going on right now while pregnant which is making things even harder for you ... your baby's only 8 months old so its a possibility

We're here for you ... lean on us ANYtime ... things aren't always easy but I always cheer myself up in thinking things could always be worse

hang in there.

Hey honey - welcome to the board
Cause I know my weakness, know my voice,
Now I believe in grace and choice,
And I know perhaps my heart is farce,
But Iíll be born without a mask
