I've struggled with depression for 6 years now and to be honest, it never really goes away. I get glimpses of what happiness feels like, but most days are filled with sadness. Working from home hasn't helped with my depression.
But the days I force myself out of the house or have human interaction helps. Everyone's journey is different. Recognizing the signs, reaching out, and attempted to change, makes you pretty awesome in my book.
How often do you feel pain and been suffering in silence? Keeping everything bottled in, afraid no one will understand, nor bother to listen. How many times have you self-medicated today or this week?
Just trying to dull the pain and sleep the day away. Do your thoughts ever get so dark you're just ready to end it all? I've been there too. I think it's so interesting how you can have an abundance of family and friends yet nothing lifts that darkness and pain.
10 to 20 percent of moms will experience postpartum depression which can interfere with daily life. Many women are suffering from postpartum depression in silence, anxiety, and learning how to be a single mom. Well after a bit of research I've found that only 15% of women with postpartum depression ever receive professional treatment.
I've gotten a good handle on single parenting, but my depression, stills seems like an everyday battle. Many moms may experience the baby blues, a mild, brief form of depression which can last for a few days or weeks after giving birth.
