depression. :(

I am 30 weeks 3 days & I have severe depression & severe anxiety, for 3 years I tried many diffrent medicines to help me. But none have worked. Now that I'm pregnant, all the hormones mess with my emotions even more.. I have to force myself to sleep! I hate doing that, I like to just fall asleep, but I am afraid of my depression over coming me. How do you girls deal with depression? Its made it hard for me to properly communicate wit. My bboyfriend and has caused many issues. I feel Like I need help!! How can I relax my mind ?

I've struggled with depression for years before I fell pregnant and I never dealt with it in the right way. I'm still struggling now, although it's not as bad as it was, I still have times where I don't see the point in my existence, etc. But at the end of it, all I think about is this beautiful life growing inside of me, depending on me and needing me. I suppress my depression because I want to be the healthiest mum I can be and to show my child that I'm a good positive role model. All you have to do is strive hun. If you're still struggling after the next few weeks maybe think of seeing a counselor or talking with your midwife about what you should do. Just try yo be positive, good luck xxx
