Recently things have been very hard for me, I feel like I am struggling with my depression worse then i have before. My main want in life is to have a baby and recently I had a postitive test but it turned out to be a false positive! (We weren't trying) My boyfriend and I want to start trying in a couple of years time so now wouldn't be the right time for us anyway but ive always had this terrible uncontrollable urge to be a mum and when someone i know announces that they are expecting its sooo difficult for me and i come over with this terrible jealousy but so happy for them at the same time! I probably sound mad but I'm just really down at the moment and i am considering counselling for the first time. Ive never felt ive really achieved much in my life but if i was to have a baby i think i would do a really good job and would feel more fulfilled in life. I worry myself sick I'm not going to be able to get pregnant one day and i know that's not healthy! Anyone felt the same? And what experiences have you all had with counselling? Xx

I've had good experiences all the way. Many different ones through the years for the children and then as I started one later just for me, I've had the last 17 years with a great woman where we both enjoy each other and it couldn't get any better. So I've had a huge amount of help through some challenging years raising 3 ADD/ADHD and 2 LD (learning disabled) children. Followed by my personal counseling as a depressed and anxiety disordered/OCD PTSD diagnosed person. There seems to be many great and highly skilled persons in this field in my area. I hope that holds true all over the nation and the world!
