Hi all, I'm new to this forum of healing well. I have been feeling my depression creeping back in lately. I guess it is time to up my Lexapro. I have an on again off again history of depression. Lately it seems to be triggered by circumstances with my children - I have three kids, two of which have chronic illness which weighs so heavy on me that sometimes I don't know how I will cope.
I think it doesn't help that the days are getting shorter and we have had alot of cloudy day lately - that really seems to effect me. Also, this has been a tough year for us economically with my husband now at 1 year of 35-40% pay cut. We also (so far anyway) have endured the threat of layoffs. The thought of losing medical insurance for my kids scares me to death!!
Just thought I would pop in and say "hi". I saw a post below with some great ideas that I might try to incorporate to try to get out of this before I get too low as the holidays are right around the corner<sigh>!!
Thanks for listening!!
