I pretty much gave up working back in November when DDs issues came to light. I devoted all of my time and energy to her, and she's made great progress. Unfortunately it's taken a big toll on my own health/well being. I'm not responding to any of the antidepressant meds I've been on, or anti anxiety meds either. My mental health is deteriorating and I've put on about 30lbs. I leave the house to work 1 or 2 days a month. My husband is supportive but he doesn't know what else to do either.
I'm afraid that not only is this no longer good for me but its really not serving DD any longer. It was great in the beginning when I was very devoted to working with her, and still took her on outings daily but anymore I'm hermiting myself away and can barely force myself to function. She won't be eligible for preschool through the state until January and she's not potty trained so I'm not sure if daycare is a good choice or even a choice at all. All I know is I'm slipping away, my depression is worsening, and my daughter has lost all benefits of my presence. What options do I have?
