I’m young I work at a law firm ,I attend college classes online ,and I have a five-year-old son. I just started my new job last week and moved into my own house but my depression and anxiety and thoughts of suicide are deeply impacting my life. I am struggling to get up in the morning and go to work. I am trying so hard to put on a happy face at work and at home but it’s getting harder every day and I don’t know what to do I feel like I’m losing control and need help on how to tackle this. I have had severe depression for about five years now and tried to seek help for anxiety as well, but it seems like the last couple of doctors I went through do not take me seriously and do not address my anxiety. I go through periods of insomnia and oversleeping. Underneath this depression I am young energetic and happy but it seems like that person is stuff down deep inside myself and I can’t get back out. I don’t talk to my family about the thoughts of my suicide and how when I drive to work I think about not coming back. The only thing keeping me alive is my son And the fear of pain to attempt to take my life .

Hi Priscilla so sorry to hear about what you go through I had depression many times
I am taking Lexapro & Clonazepam it's a good mix
Make sure your Thyroid function normally with a blood test.
Take a high dose of Vitamin D 5000 Unit/day and Vitamin B complex as well.
Try to spend as much time as possible outside in the sun, do excersice the best is swinning.
If you have insomnia you can use Ambien and or 5 mg Melatonin, sometimes I can't sleep and it is save to take both if one is not enough.
Don't stay alone and keep calling your physicians it's their job and duty to make us feel better and they only do that if you keep on contacting them.
Depression is a tricky disease but it passes, hope this post helps a bit.
