I know I have depression, but I don't like taking pills. I did take paxil when I turned 18, but stop a couple months later. I have only really talked to a couple of really close friends about
my issues. I have a really hard time to
open up to someone and tell them what I feel or how I'm doing. I just turned 28 almost a month ago, and I still have a very hard time
opening up to people. I am however a very good listener(I'd rather be the one listening than the one doing the talking).
I feel lost and alone a lot. I do have a great 5yr old son who just started kindergarten. Other than that, my folks live a few miles away, but I never could tell them all I feel. I got pregnant with my in 2002. It wasn't exactly planned. My son's father lives only 20 miles away, yet he doesn't visit with him. His father expects me to take him to see him. I never once bad talked his father to my son. I feel he should know him as he sees him. Other than that, I am still single. I had several boyfriends since I had my son, but they wanted me to get married right away, and I wanted to take it slow. I also had a hard time to tell them my feelings and thoughts. Ok, enough blabbing, what can I do to get out of these depressed states without taking pills?
