  1. Wow. Thank you guys for reading my post and the compassion you guys have shown me. I do appreciate it and planning on sticking around.
  2. It's okay. Sometimes being heard is just as good as advice that is given out.
  3. I really appreciate that, Epictetus, thank you.
  4. Hi. This is my first post here. I have suffered from anxiety and depression off and on my whole life (diagnosed at 4 with anxiety, 14 with depression). So technically not my whole life. In recent years things have gotten better for me with the help of medication and therapy. I even started a life for myself I never thought I would ever have. I became a first time mom 15 months ago and she really is the light of my life. When she was born and a year after my life was the best it had ever been. Then about 4 months ago, life got really hard. My dad got sick with cancer and copd. My husband and I moved him to the apartment complex we were living at to help take care of him. It was not easy and my dad's cancer spread to his brain and he became more difficult. On November 8th of this past year, I watched my dad die in front of me by myself. I had always been terrified of death and had never lost anyone close to me before. The next day my husband was fired from his job because his boss wanted him to come into work even though he had already took the day off. He worked at the apartment complex we live in. I never fully grieved my dad because we were freaking out about having to find my husband another job. He eventually did, but he doesn't like it and I don't get to spend as much time with my husband now. I have tried to be strong, but of late I feel I am failing. I try to go through the motions for my daughter and husband. I am mostly just very lonely. I don't have many friends. I have acquaintances, I suppose, but no one I can really talk to. I guess I am sort of reaching out here. Lately, I am struggling and I want to see some glimmer of light somewhere. I am hoping I can come here and gain some insight and maybe give some too. Thanks for letting me share.
