i have two children
lj hes 2 (3 in January and srr she turned 1 in june
im 25 and ive been living with depression since i was 18-19
i had lj at 22 an srr at 23
my now ex has my kids atm because of my mental health and adhd
ive basically been told its unlikely ill ever get them back because mental health wont improve in the time frame that they want
we are under ss (social services )
has anyone had similar issues depression lost their kids and then got better and got the kids back
i dont normally post on these things as people judge so much but thought id try as im all alone atm no friends e.g
i need to know there's light at the end of the tunnel cause im loosing hope tbh
im on meds and im having therapy but we still dont know why im so depressed or suicidal

The therapist can ask you probing questions, but the end of the day, only you can ask and answer yourself these questions. There are triggers that your partner needs to help you with.
