It seems as if you have a lovely family there your OH knows you are ill and your children know mum needs to rest... Yes it's hard feeling useless at times when you have things planned and you can't enjoy them ... You mention you feel depressed and are taking fluoxetine... It may be that it doesn't really suit you. It didnt me .. I had to try 4 anti depressants before I found the one that suits me and when you do find one that suits you things certainly seem a lot more manageable. Now you have an official diagnosis after Easter go to your GP and tell him how you feel and that you are depressed, hopefully he will suggest something that suits you better...

Good luck
