Hi everyone, I am new to this board and hoping to gain support from everyone here.
I am a mom of 2 young children, ages 2 and 3. I also watch a one year old for some extra money. My husband works full time and is generally a great guy. Lately I've been going through spouts of depression--I'm either down and don't feel like doing anything to the opposite; having great energy and being in a great mood. Well, my husband doesn't really believe in "mental problems" and taking medicine for them, so I don't open up to him about this....I recently told my husband a small lie (which I normally DO NOT do) and it snowballed causing him to be extremely angry. I am trying to get him to trust me again and to be "normal."--but it's tough. I will elaborate more about me in further posts but for right now I have a few questions:
-do any of your spouses not understand depression and how it makes you feel?
-do any of you take a depression medication that you really love and doesn't make you feel like a zombie?
Thank you so much :)
