That is beautiful Jessie!! And about taking pics of your neighbor.

I agree with what has already been stated about the wonderful support here. I suffer off and on with bouts of depression especially around September when our son was still born in 2007 and October when our 15 yr old committed suicide in 2008 which then leads into the holiday season AND the months where we have the least amount of daylight so it can really linger on and I have to try my best to be concious of it but sometimes I'm not and I just can't pull myself out of it and it has to be brought to my attention and sometimes I need to talk to someone outside of my family to help. But really, when we lost Mystic to suicide I hid for months and it was finally my friends here on DS who tracked me down through previous pp purchases and emailed me and got me to snap out of it. There is nothing like the community of women (AND TIM!!!!) that we have here - it is an awesome creation

I see my kids being afraid of me, and not knowing what I'm going to do or say, and it makes me want to
I take Zoloft and last year I saw a therapist to help work out some "trigger" issues and also to give me some coping tools with the things that stress me out.
Oh, that sounds familiar. I'm mildly bipolar, too. I had a family doc prescribe things that he said were safe for TCC/pregnancy so I think they'd be safe for nursing as well. I think it was Buspar and Wellbutrin together?

Thanks for all the hugs mamas. This is probably the only place i feel like i can open up.. Even though its totally public.
My mom and I both get those drive-the-car-off-the-road ideations sometimes. It's actually better this pregnancy than it is normally, but I had that (plus panic attacks and all the fun stuff) as long as I can remember, too. I was on meds for it as a kid.

Here's my WIP:


It's an 4T A-line cardigan (no pattern) for a sweet mama here. Sorry it was dark and I just threw it down on my OBV blanket for a quick shot.

and what I just finished a while ago but just got pictures of:

Oh, Jessie- I am so glad you got those buttons to work! The romper turned out beautifully!!!

I just thought I would add (in case anyone thought I was completely nuts), I never harmed Caleb in any way. That's why I put him in bed and walked away for a few minutes. I did get the help I needed because I feared what I could have done. I'm very glad I did that too.
