Re: Can Marriage Survive Depression?

I've been married for nearly 10 years now and have been living together for 11. My wife has been mildly to severely depressed all that time. We've got kids. I've had periods of mild depression too. It can seem like hell on earth on some of the blackest days, but on some it can be great. How sympathe...

Re: Aggressive

I've found sometimes the meds can make things feel a bit worse before they start feeling better. For me they can make me feel cranky (not normally like me) and a bit more down for a bit. Then after about 2 -3 weeks it starts kicking in.

Re: Need to vent

Maybe ask about counselling when you're seeing the gp? Might help you sort out which things are making you feel better/worse. Might be chance to sort out stuff about your relationship. ETA someone on here just said to me - only someone who doesn't understand depression can say things like that. Hang...

Re: How much truth is too much?

Also, one thing I've found works really well is: when you've done a pen and paper letter, photocopy it and send it to the boss of whoever you're complaining to. It just means that everyone then seems to do their best to be professional as the thought of their supervisor looking over their shoulder '...

Re: Hate myself

I very nearly posted on this about 4 hours ago but the kids needing to go to bed put the jinx on that. Then you replied to my post in the newbies :) so I don't feel too weird commenting on your post now! What I was *going* to say was it sounds a very familiar story. My partner could have written tha...

Today has been a good day. Besides signing up here (hi!) I've done stuff with the kids, not been too stressed/down to cope with it. My partner has also been ok today (some days can be tough if I'm pulling the sled and *everyone* else is on it). I've done some cooking (even made biscuits). So not a b...

Re: Its all new to me

Hi. I've just joined too. I'm in the post above you. I'm not new to forums but somehow signing up to this feels like a big thing. Two things occurred to me from your post: *How understanding/good/nice is your doctor? they can give you a load of options (not all drugs). *Have you tried CBT? I managed...

I'm new too.

I'm new too. I'm a 42 yo with depression with a partner with moderate to severe depression, two kids (one of whom is 4 and super bright, the other is 3 and special needs). Have really unsupportive parents (wanted to call SS to get kids removed when one day in the Christmas hols they found all of us ...
