: Hi all.
: Stupid as it sounds but i dunno if you remember about the post on depression, Well i had it after my baby was born 12 months ago..
: I decided not to seek medical advice and "try" and over come it myself. Things were going ok intill theses last 2 months i had loads of problems with my side of my family which don't involve me but im piggy in the middle trying to sort things out between them Arggg!!
: Last week my husband ask me if i was feeling ok as ive been really moody and not talking etc, then i started crying telling him what was wrong, I feel like i cant function anymore, When people are talking to me my brain is else where same in watching TV, Ill even watch a movie and forget half way through whats happend, i have a bad lack of constration. It was my 25th birthday last week and i planned a big night out with friends, I wasn't even looking forward it and called it all off 4 days before!
: So now ive made a doctors appoment for friday morning as i relized i can't help myself anymore and theres deffo a problem.

: I think i was in denial too much convincing myself and others that i was ok, I feel kinda dumb now
: Anyone gone through somthing like this?

: Thanks for listeing :)

I have gone through something similar but I am also battling with the hormonal ups and downs associated with Endometriosis. I have not seen a dr for it yet. I am a firm believer in doing everything I can on my own at first, until I can't do it anymore! A few things I have tried that may help you as well. Watch your diet and how you eat. Eat healthier if you can. Exercise!!! Great way to reduce stress. Ds and I take regular walks around the neighborhood. Be sure to get plently of sleep but not too much, if and when you can. Good luck and hope everything goes well for you.
