I've suffered depression since a child, being brought up by abusive alcoholic parents and ex-husband.
My dad had a nervous breakdown because of the alcohol when I was a child.
I'm just wondering whether depression/anxiety run in the family as my eldest daughter has taken 2 overdose and now my 15yr old has developed an eating disorder and has depression.
I thought I was doing a good job in bringing my girls up but this has really hit me hard. She is getting help from the docs and the mental team but I feel a failure.
I'm dealing with my depression which comes and goes, I have my bad days and my good days.
