first time i have posted... I have suffered with depression for many years and have often felt in control of it but its just getting overwhelming at the moment. I feel like if I fell, no one would catch me. I am single, have a 17 year old daughter, who is wonderful but relies on me a lot as she suffers with anxiety. My Mum passed away many years ago, my Dad is in a care home with dementia and doesnt to live anymore. I run my own business, so if i dont work i dont earn and i am already in debt. Despite years of depression, i am only just realising the mess it has got me in, i seem to be very good at putting on a brave face to the point i have fooled myself. There just isnt anyone to pick up the pieces if I dont carry on and if I dont carry on things will just get worse, I just cant see a break to this. I just wish i had a person, someone to help me, someone who didnt want something from me, i am just so tired.
