Glad you joined this site. Lots of good people to talk to. Thanks for sharing with us. Hope your depression continues to improve. We're all in this together.
Support groups are a place for people to give and receive both emotional and practical support as well as to exchange information. People with health conditions, as well as their friends and families find support groups to be a valuable resource and get confirmation that their feelings are "normal", educate others, or just let off steam. IMHO joining a support group is joining a family.
Welcome to the family, we are thrilled to have you with us.
Hi Vanessa, I welcome you too and hope you will feel free to express your concerns to us and ask for help or support. There are so many wonderful people on this forum and they are very kind and willing to help. I have suffered from depression for a long time and am going through a hard time right now which I am hoping will improve with working with my therapist. You mention that you have 3 children. I assume they are young. Could it be possible you have post partum depression and don't realize it? I imagine you are home all day with 3 children. Maybe if you can get out of the house and go to a park or join a group of Moms where the kids can play that would help you. And you could meet some friends too. I hope you will post again and let us know how you are doing. I wish you the very best and hope you find comfort in talking to us in this group.
