I’ve suffered with anxiety and depression for as long as I

I’ve suffered with anxiety and depression for as long as I can remember. I’m 25 years old and a single mom of 2. I’ve been on Paxil for almost 2 years and despite all the bad things I’ve heard about it, it’s done wonders for me. I’m in between doctors right now and I’ve not had my Paxil in 2 weeks. I’ve been coping pretty well till the last few days. I feel so lonely and helpless. My family doesn’t understand and feeling likes this makes me feel like a horrible mother. I know that these feelings are irrational and not me but I can’t shake it off. I’m really hoping that someone here can understand me.

I can say without my medication I get the same way as well. What I tend to do is start journaling some of my thoughts and sometimes just writing them all down seems to help me get through, or I talk with my family. Depression runs in my family like wild fire, so they all know what I am dealing with.

Depression runs in mine as well but nobody wants to acknowledge it. My mom is the last person I wanna talk to about it because she always turns it on her like her issues are worse than mine. She’s got a lot to do with why I am this way and i hate even trying to explain that because it’s all “woah is me” my dad has gotten where he finally sees that he has a small problem. But I don’t think that anyone seems to grasp how ****** I feel on a regular basis. Honestly, my 9 year old is my biggest supporter. He understands way more than he should at his age but I’m so grateful he does.
