Depressed Mother


New member
My mother has suffered with depression for most of her life. I grew up learning how to identify her "blue" periods when she was going through these extreme emotions. Constantly trying to make her feel better as a child really created a traumatic impact on my childhood. Now as an adult, I'm dealing with depression and it can be very difficult sometimes. I often wonder if it will be passed onto my children when I have them.

I hear you

I feel the same way - my little baby is not yet one but I am so concerned that she will already be working out that I am not well and am not always able to care for her emotional needs. I dont have any answers for you - but I hear you and feel the same concerns.
