I’m feeling blue today. I’ve struggled with non-clinical depression since I was a teenager, but mainly only have mild flare-ups now. My husband and I are expecting our second child later this year, and while I’m really excited to meet our baby, I’m struggling a lot with depression these days. I am sick a lot from nausea and exhaustion, but it’s not just the physical toll that has me down, I don’t think. I want to get to the bottom of this, but we don’t have money for a therapist, and I’m unsure what to do.

One thought on “Blue”

  1. I know this may seem cliche but deep breaths REALLY. DO HELP. not even kidding. My boyfriend taught me that 🙂 And girl, i get it, ive been diagnosed with depression and bipolar. I may not get being pregnant or having kids but i get being a daughter to a mother who gave up on life and it was really sad to see. She chose alcohol to fill her instead of her family’s love for her. Not saying you’ll do this but maybe you can take it from a stranger. Giving up would not be worth it. Stay strong girl, and if you believe in God like i do, do your best to follow his teachings. He will guide you. – your friend Evra
