Ahhhhhh,yes,depression...my first,middle and last name...
have been on several meds...they are sorta like clothes,not all fit the person. Would encourage you to seek counseling before August...and also would encourage you to stay attuned to te situation when in counseling,also...couselors are also like clothes...seek one who has a specialty in PPD or womens's depressive disorders...do what you have to do to take care of yourself...become your own advocate.
Many of us in this profession have depressive disorders,for a variety of reasons. Get labs done as suggested by other posters...we women are extremely complicated chemically and cannot be lumped into one category...and our MD's need to realize that our bodies/minds cannot be treated based on "male" prototypes.
Stay on your MD's case and get the help you need...soon.
And askater11...keep us posted...we do care.
OK yall... I cannot carry a tune in a bucket,but overwhelm my lack of voice with your harmonies...mmmmmmm-----K????

Sometimes in our lives,
We all have pain,we all have sorrow,
But if we are wise,
We know that there's always tomorrow
Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend, I'll help you carry on
For,it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need someone to lean on
Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need you need to borrow
For no one can fill
Those of your needs that you won't let show
You just call on me sister when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on.
If there is a load
You have to bear,that you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load if you just call me
Call me if you need a friend,
OK...that was great...I left out a couple of the more repetative refrains....I know you know the song...
Come here often,make contact...
We understand more than you realize...lighten your load...we will cheer you on...
