I have had depression since I was 16 on and off. Since giving birth to my first child in 2012 it came back and I have been on Fluoxetine since May 2012. I have been feeling a lot better over recent months, and my friends and family say they have all noticed how much happier I appear.
Yesterday I had my first counselling session and I feel like I have taken a huge step back. My husband asked how it went and I explained what I had talked about. We had a long chat about things, mostly my relationship with my Son and I went to bed feeling so much worse than I have for months. My fears about being a failure as a mum and a wife came flooding back and now I can't shake them.
I have my next session on Tuesday but, tbh, if they make me feel like this I am not sure I want to continue.
