My name is Emma, I'm 30 years old and have battled with depression on and off for 13 years.
I was coping really well until I had the coil fitted 3 months ago and suddenly I'm closer to the edge than I ever have been. I've never had so many black thoughts, and I certainly never thought that the world would be better off without me... until recently.
I saw my GP this morning and now have an appointment to have it removed, and hope that this will at least relieve some of the problem, but hopefully hvaing people going through the same thing to talk to will help as well. My husband, friends and family really don't understand and can't help, even though they try sometimes they make me feel worse.
Looking forward to sharing this ordeal with you all, and hopefully I'll be able to offer support as well as gain it.
Emma

Hi Emma

I'm new to this so not entirely sure how it works. I read your post and although I can't really offer you any guidance I felt I had to reply. I'm sorry that you feel so alone and I know exactly how you feel although just recently I've been feeling a lot more positive. I don't know about you, but does it make you feel guilty that you've got a loving family and still feel like this?!!? I have 3 beautiful children and a wonderful husband and very supportive parents. However, i still find it difficult to cope sometimes and feel like everything(kids, housework etc) is my responsibility and struggle to hold down a full time job. I hope it helps knowing that someone else knows how you feel.

Do you think its the hormones that the coil release that have affected you? I've had a coil for the past 7 years and never thought to make a connection.

I hope to hear from you soon take care and keep smiling
