shakehead  Well, things in my life lately have been half in my favor and half against me! My depression is affecting me and my relationship with my fiance! I do not know what has caused me to break into this never ending slump I've dived into, but I do have some ideas! I am 35 years old and love most of the things in my life, i.e. my kids, my fiance! Lately all I seem to be able to do is sleep and start stupid arguments! I am unhappy in my relationship because of some or most of his insecurities that threaten our happiness! My mom brings on a heavy burden as well! She has custody of my kids! I just don't know where to turn or how to begin the process to fix me! I used to be an amazingly perky and happy and optimistic person! Always full of energy and kind words! I want me back! Any suggestions?

Hello and welcome to HealingWell.  I am glad you found us.  It feels to me like you have a good idea on what your feeling down about and I am hoping you have access to a counselor.
Sorry to hear about your problems with your significant other.  Relationships are some of the most amazing journeys that you will ever go on in life. Sure they have their highs and lows, but if both people are willing to put in the effort and grow together, it can be an incredible experience. However, when this experience begins to turn bad it can be one of the most depressing times in your life.
If you find that your arguments are beginning to escalate, it is a good idea to take a step back and let things cool down. After the situation has settled a little, then it's time to talk rationally about the problem, and try to discover the root cause of the argument.
Keeping a positive attitude is a good thing so keep on doing what helps you to feel better and remember to take care of yourself first.
