Good Morning and welcome to HealingWell and the depression forum. I am sorry to read of the tough times you have been through. Your story is very similiar to many others we have had recently so I am sure you will be hearing from other members who know where your coming from and what your going through.
May I suggest that you do seriously consider finding a new therapist, one you can build a trust relationship with, and that you start to take one step at a time to get past the depression.
Again a warm welcome to you.
I joined the forum today too looking for some answers....It sounds like you have had a tough few years and as a Mom of a depressed teenager I feel for you. We too are having a tough time and I know exactly what you mean about not being able to do what is best. Lately I have trouble with the things I love the most. somehow for me I feel like I don't deserve to paint, or exercise or whatever as long as everything else for my family isn't worked out. I know that that is self defeating behavior but it happens everyday... some days are better than others and it does seem to depend on my mood. My mood seems to depend greatly on my body cycles too so as women we have so much to balance.
I am the mom in a family of boys and we have had some challenges too in the last few years. i would love the opportuntity to talk with a young lady who is more in tune with emotions etc.
