mleb43 posted a topic in **A Special Forum to Welcome our 'NEW MEMBERS'!!**I just signed up and for the past hour have been looking over the posts. I am so glad there is a place like this for us. I am a 43 year old woman with a husband and two sons that are 18, 17. My kids are the only thing that keeps me going. There are time, which are more frequent than not that I have severe depression. And just when I think I can't take it anymore I end up thinking of my children and asking myself what their reaction would be if I wasn't here. And that basically keeps me living day to day, year to year. I can't afford therapy and my regular doctor won't prescribe any meds for me so I live with this constant drowning feeling all the time. Its horrible, sometimes it hurts too. I don't know what to do.
