I have everything I ever wanted but I have never been SO unhappy! Awesome husband, 3 perfect kids, nice house... I feel SO ashamed of my depression because honestly I am very blessed! But why do I feel SO alone. I need to make some other mom friends who I have things in common with but can't seem to shake my feelings of never wanting to leave the house. I need to figure out how to get in shape and get motivated. I need to be a better Mother and Wife! I am 30 years old and should have it all together but it couldn't be more the opposite! I know I am not clinically depressed but the sadness is overwhelming! Being happy is not so easy... I guess I could just use someone to give me some advice.

I agree! I am probably stronger than I think. I just need a kick in the butt!

I will also add... 'suck it up' would be the WORST thing someone could tell me as I can't DO that... so I don't say it in a harsh way... just that if you aren't legitimately depressed simply changing your attitude WILL work... and if it doesn't... please seek some help. ♥

Counseling can be very beneficial. If you are depressed and 'don't have a reason' to be depressed... how do you know you don't have 'clinical depression'? It's apparently not situational depression.... ?

Some people benefit greatly from medication, some from counseling, some from diet change and exercise.... many benefit from a combination of some or all of the above.

You have a couple of options... 'suck it up and get over it', live like you are living, or get some help. Personally... as someone who has struggled w/ depression her whole life... I'd get help.
