    I'm new to this forum & just signed up as a member. I joined because I like reading other experiences & would like to share some of my own. I was abit scared at first to join. But I feel this a good move to share my thoughts & feelings.

    It's good to know I'm not alone on the rollercoaster ride of depression, anxiety & PTSD. I'm currently learning how to handle the episodes I go through. I also see a psych & on meds.

    It has been a rough road but still getting up every morning doing my best. Currently a stay at home mum with a beautiful boy. He is my reason to keep fighting through my battles. Also have a patient partner who has been through all my ups & downs with me & is very supportive. But I tend to shut him out at times & lose my cool. So I'm still a work in progress.

    Hi loleini,
    Im also new and just going through some similar things.
    I don't think I'm ready to go into details but when i read your post it hit pretty close to what im dealing with now. I guess i joined as i feel like my marriage is suffering and i wanted to know if its common and how to deal with those around us (family) and if women like me who have a husband and a child can heal.

    Hope things get better for you, its a comfort to know we arent alone in this battle and we need to fight for each day and everything that comes our way.

    Hi Lilz!

    Thanks for sharing your experiences. Relationships can be tricky when your going through the notions. In my experience when I was at the peak of it all I completely shut out my family & Isolated myself & pretty much drained out my partner emotionally. It was a tough road at the beginning plus was a new mum & trying to find the balance.

    But once I finally seeked help & was open to receiving support from family & friends things slowly started to get better.

    I know its miserable spot to be in but you will conquer all your battles & heal from this in time. You'll find your passion again soon & then you'll be thriving. Just take one step at a time. I found journaling to be great way to release the emotions, walking & talking to someone outside of my family circle that I trust.

    Hopefully this is abit of helpful advice. Here anytime if you need a chat x
