  • My problem is almost the same as yours , im always crying ,I hurt easily , sometimes I feel like I'm being unreasonable. I have too much anger but I can't tell what caused it.i have tried almost everything from psychologists to involving myself in sports . lately I'm too controlling

  • Yes that's like me. Some days I feel ok but my mood can change so fast and over the littlest things aswell. Sometimes when Iv had a bad day and then feel ok the next I think back to my reactions and feelings and think that's not me at all and how odd and crazy must I seem to others when I think it about myself.

  • Oh God Rebecca, I want to cry for you. I know EXACTLY how you feel. :(

    I don't have any professional advice to give you, and I can't wave my magic wand and give you a miracle cure. (If I could, I'd have cured myself).

    But what I can say is please don't worry unduly about the effect that this is having on your children. I have had depression my son's entire life, he only has me, his 'Dad' left before he was born! My son is now 18, and he is a happy, healthy, wonderful young man. If my illness changed him in any way, I think it just made him extra loving, extra understanding, extra kind. We are incredibly close, and he wouldn't swap me for the world, no matter how broken I am!!

    Your children love you unconditionally and they want and need you so much. If I was to say something, I would say, try to find something, age appropriate, to say to your children, when you're crying or feeling low. It could simply be, Mummy's having a sad day today and needs a little cuddle. Children will be less confused and frightened, if you find some way to communicate with them, and keep them in the loop, even the little ones.

    Take care. xx
