I'm suffering through a terrible bout of depression. I had surgery about 3 weeks ago but I slipped into this depression state before the surgery. I am 49 years old and this has happened to me once before about 5 years ago and I was able to climb out. I worry because my dad was bipolar and could I have the genes? Can you develop bipolar later in life? My job is very stressful and I find out the day of my surgery my job may be closing its doors. I have two young kids and all this is way to overwhelming! I can't sleep I can't eat and I feel like I am the biggest loser and failure. I just lost my mom less then a year ago and I'm wondering if this is all part of the grieving process. I'm worried about losing my job and losing everything! I'm walking around in constant fear. So I kept looking on the internet for help and this is how I found this group.
By the way I pray every night asking for healing.
Thanks for being here
