So glad to find this forum. Maybe I can get some help from you all.
I believe I may be suffereing from a mild depression. I will start by saying about 14 months ago I had a falling out with some family members (sisters) over a financial matter that involved my mom. We still talk and see each other but it's not the same as it was. In addition I had lived with my mom and dad my entire life. I am in my mid 40's. I felt like I was forced to move out of the home that I had lived in with them my whole life so I moved in with a roommate. It's an okay situation but I feel depressed about it all the time. When I'm at work I think I'm okay (a teacher). My mom and I are still getting along as well as we ever did and we do things together alot. I stay at her house some and see her a lot. But the depression seems to start when ever I'm at the house and then leave and think about it. Tonight I'm staying there because we have been out of town together and its a long way out to where I live now. She lets me stay here alot though. I don't know why but this afternoon I just got depressed all over and starting crying in the car on the way home. She was asleep and didn't see me. I believe i'm lonely too because i have no friends. I just work all week, go home and that's it. Does anyone think this is depression and have suggestions for me. I would appreciate it. Thank you

Yes, it very well could be depression.

My best suggestion for you is to find a counselor and also speak with your family doctor.

The counselor is probably self explanatory. The family doctor is because your depression may not be totally situational and it would not hurt to look into physiological possibilities as well.

Thanks for the advice. At this time though I can not afford a therapist. I had one but it was costing me too much and I'm barely making it on what I have right now. Looking for a new one that might help but the expense is holding me back.

Check for mental health facilities with sliding scales, that could really bring the cost down.
