I'm new to the board so I apologize if this has been asked numerous times. Today I'm having one of those days where I feel like I'm in a dark hole, everything hurts and I can't get myself out of bed and if I do get out of bed it's not for long. I feel as if I've been carrying a lot of stress lately and it has finally taken a toll on my mind and body. I have also recently stopped BF my 6 month old son plus dealing with little sleep compared to the norm.
My question is, at what point did you realize you needed help? I often find it difficult to conceal my "moods" but I try for the sake of keeping a happy marriage and just so I'm not such a debby downer all the time but then I have days like today and it's just really hard. My husband is a generally happy guy and he just doesn't understand. I've had issues with depression in the past, however the Zoloft I was taking made me feel robotic so I weaned myself off.
I'm beginning to feel as if I might need to find a new medication or something to help me. I feel like my moods are affecting the people around me negatively and it only makes it worse.
Wow. Sorry this was so drawn out. Thanks for listening.
