Hi my name is Ann,
I am 36 yrs old and a mother to 4 boys ages 18,14,12,4 and a new mom to a 7 week old puppy(Girl)
I had my first depression when I was 15 yrs old. I thought I was losing my mind. I did not take anything to help me, I thought I could do it on my own to get better. anyways, I'm pretty sure I have bipolar this is ther reason.
I have really bad mood swings, happy, then sad, angry, irratated(sp) and pretty much hate the world. I can be fine 1 day and not the other day, or I could be normal part of the day and then BAM either feeling angry or just sad. I had a very rough childhood, everything from beatings from my mother to sexual abuse from my brother and my cousin. I just need to know what to do, I really don't have alot of money to seek help. I am trying to be a good mom for my kids but sometimes that can be very hard. friends and family see a difference in me, I am to ashamed to let them kno what's wrong with me. I'm glsd I found this place and hope that I really can get some encouragement and support here.
