  1. I feel as though I could have written the same thing as I was in the same situation at your age. I have social anxiety and ruminate over every little mistake or interaction. I am just now reaching out for help after all these years because, in my family, depression and anxiety wasn't considered "real".Please know that you're not alone and that you are taking some very courageous steps by seeking help.
  2. Thank you! I wish you the best too. I think just the act of being on the forum helps us know that we're not alone and that there is help out there. Take care! :)
  3. I do worry a lot about my daughter growing up with divorced parents, but we are dedicated to being kind and respectful to each other for her sake. It's reassuring to hear the perspective of someone that had divorced parents because I feel as though hopefully, were on the right track to make sure she has a healthy upbringing. I will definitely check out FocusOnTheFamily further. There are some great resources there. Thank you.
  4. Thank you for your message. Having my daughter has made me very determined, but also very anxious. I worry about making a stable life for her and I hope that I can give her a healthy and happy outlook on life despite being a child of divorce so young. I haven't had to much luck with therapists, but I think with all these life events I'm experiencing, I should give it a try. Maybe I can start with online talk therapy, it'd be easier for me since I don't have a stable babysitter. I'm really glad that I found this forum and thank you for your encouragement. I look forward to sharing with you all.
  5. Thank you very much for your encouraging words. Sometimes I feel as though I'm drowning in my thoughts and self doubt. It really means a lot to have a forum where people can understand and be encouraging. Your post helped lift my spirits today.
  6. I want to say hello to everyone here and I hope that this will be a friendly and supportive group. What brought me here today are negative ruminations. I'm 36 and I've had depression for what seems like forever and progressively developed social anxiety along the way. This past week I've ruminated about so many negative memories hat it has driven me to the point of almost giving up. I'm a new mom and trying to get through separation/divorce and I want to make sure that I can be the best mom to my baby by finding a way to manage and hopefully cure my problem with depression.
