I have 3 kids that have grown up. no one has been near. My youngest has been in touch by text, saying she was coming over, but when i text she said she was out to lunch, my son is so depressed he sits and doesnt bother with his self, only to eat sweets and fatty food. My other daughter, shes making the point that if i dont tow the line, they shes just not interested. All suffering from depression, but i cant help but feel like crying.
none of them will go for counselling, (Because i trained as one) I can see them in all sorts of issues and pain. And the oldest uses her kids as a tool, also the ones who died, which happened yearssssssss ago. We should all bow and walk on egg shells in case shes in one of her moods.
Its mothers day, no one has been near. It hurts.
Because I have suffered depression, I find it hard to get recognision for my training, gp doesnt realised i trained when i was depressed, but surely the counsellors would have seen if anything was unduly wrong. So now Im going to take my ba honors. The maybe I might be allowed to work and have pride in myself again. As it seems my family are the last people who ,,,,,I was hoping to re-educated and dispell fears about depression. Or at least help people to understand what it is like. But im feeling quite alone right now. Why do people with depression get treated like they equal to society - a criminal.
a fewkind words, might help cheer me up
