I've been trying my hardest to cope, I haven't gotten on med

I've been trying my hardest to cope, I haven't gotten on medication yet due to I just had my third child, I was with my kids father for 4 years, and he left me and our kids for another woman, I am trying to stay strong but my emotions are all over the place and I feel as though I'm losing my mind, Losing someone I loved with everything in me I feel as though I'm dying inside, then being a single mom of 3 on top of that, plus losing my apartment then moving to a new state away from my dad and cousin, In with a family friend, I feel so alone and I can't shake the depression I'm Falling into, I feel worthless, like I wasn't good enough, that I'll never be good enough and the tears won't stop, and the anger I have won't go away, I was only diagnosed about a year ago, and my bpd is something that constantly made my relationship with my kids father hard, he didn't understand me or what I was going through and now I lost him

Dan1950 right that’s a lot for anybody to deal with and you most feel so low ... try to keep busy with your 3 beautiful kids but do make time for yourself... what ever makes you happy do... you have hit tough times but it won’t always be like this.... you may not see it at the moment but you are so blessed to have your children and they are good at keeping us going.... we all have a destiny but the sh*t we have to go through to get there can be very unfair... goodluck my friend you truly are a trooper. :)

In the event you need to do it, you can totally take an antidepressant while you are pregnant or nursing. It's better to get a psychiatrist who specializes in this though. I know from experience! My ex left me when I was pregnant with our third child and I became very, suicidally depressed. I was on multiple medications and had electroconvulsive therapy, and my son was born quite healthy. I nursed him till he was 17 months old and then I had to stop as I had a relapse and they wanted to try a medication that wouldn't be safe for him. And yes, it's been so very painful. I still love my ex and still don't feel like I've healed from it. But life does go on, and it does get better. Be kind to yourself, accept any help that you can get, and really push yourself to enjoy the moments that are good, like with your kids.
