Hi I'm 22 and have two children, my children are great and are my life. I also have a partner of 7 years. I have struggled with depression since my mum died in 2009 iv just never opened up to Anyone about it. I took the first step today and have contacted my health visitor (don't feel I can confide in my doctor) I feel it's really came to a ahead since January this year as I basically asked my remaining family,my grandmother for more help with my children as I noticed she had her other grandchildren alot. When I spoke to her about this I got told I was jealous by her and other members of my family and to be honest it's really hurt me. They don't want to see me or my children anymore. This doesn't really annoy me as I feel like they were a negative impact on my life as they judged everything I done even the way I raised my children. The only people I speak to from my family is one of my sisters and a cousin, and even that's every now again through Facebook. I have around 3 friends who are always to busy for me. I just don't know where to go from here. My partner is a great help when he here but works 30+ hours each week. I do the sake thing each day cleaning and looking after my babies. I am also scared to leave the house on days my partner is working. I do it once a week for a mums and tots group and I struggle doing this.
I'm always worried about people's views as I'm a young mum. Is there anyone else that feels like this?
