Hi :redface:

I'm not really sure what to say here.. although i go on many forums (mainly for my different animals lol) I'm not used to talking openly about my feelings, so this forum is new ground to me!

I'll try though. A little about me.. :)

I'm 24 and I'm a single mum to my 2 gorgeous boys! :love:

I have suffered depression a while, i would say.. i was around 17 when it started to get really bad, it has been on and off over the years, with me having good months/years and bad. I have been on and off medication since 17yrs old. There are many other things that i have alongside the depression but i choose to ignore these 'get on with life' and put a smile on my face.. as i should do, and i do so well!

Its only lately I'm noticing all my issues when put together are kind of getting a little out of control now, and having just had my second baby 10 weeks ago, I'm starting to struggle to cope alone.

My dad and some close family members know i suffer depression and know i have previous issues with self harm and eating disorders (although they only knows as much as i let them), but they don't know the full extent of how i feel day to day. My mood swings, impulsiveness; especially with regards to buying things i don't need nor really want, getting into debt.. then paranoia and anxiety, irrational thoughts and very low self confidence and self worth. I'm scared to talk about it in case i just get told to 'get a grip' and to 'think about my children' as these comments only trigger more depression, i don't deal with criticism/rejection well at all, blowing the smallest of things all out of proportion, so comments like that would only make me doubt myself more than i do already.. hence its usually easier to keep it all to myself. I know its more than just depression but i don't know what to do or where to go for help. I feel I'll be letting everyone down, more so my children, and i have no one to talk to about it..

So here i am, hoping i can talk to people who may understand, and even if not, then to just be there to support and not judge..

Anyway look forward to chatting with you all :)

Simone
