I am an 18 Year Old Mom Diagnosed With Severe Depression And Anxiety
Wed, Aug 18th 2010
Hi. I am 18 years old, married, with a child and another on the way. I love my baby and my husband. However, I fear my depression has caused my husband to no longer love me. I feel as if he hates me. He says things like, "if I weren't 'this way' maybe he would want to be around me. We barely spend any time together anymore, we used to be inseparable. Now I can't even keep him around me for more than 2 hours when the day starts. The things that are going on between us on top of my stress and depression make me seriously consider killing myself to escape the heartache and pain.
