Hi everyone, thanks for reading, I'm new here. I've never been diagnosed with depression but I have been dealing with the symptoms for most of of my 31 years. I am a relatively new dad, my only child is 15 months old. I am having a very hard time handling all of the duties that come with fatherhood in addition to being my family's sole income earner. My wife is burned out from her duties with our daughter and isn't really able to help me. I am getting very depressed and it is affecting how I interact with my family. I see only work and responsibilty around me and I have lost joy in most of the things I do. I only see examples of nice things that I no longer have access to. I'm in a position with little support- I live abroad and both my family and my wife's family live far away. I joined this group to hear from others who might be able to relate.
All the best,
