My husband has had temporary custody of our 6 year old son for over a year. I see my son about 2 weekends a month. I miss him so much. I suffer from depression among other diagnosis, I have attempted suicide many times, I am trying to get better, however I need a new psychiatrist, the psychiatrist I have been seeing since I was first admitted to hospital has done nothing for me except give me medication - 8 different types so far. The children's aid society is involved and they really have not done much to help. I have been on a leave from work for 2 years and my ex has a new girlfriend for over a year. My visits are supervised with my son and to add insult to injury, I'm a teacher. I am consumed every day with guilt, shame and remorse for my poor judgement. I have lost a year of my sons life. My ex also has had a stable, normal girlfriend for a year, I am terrified that they may move in together one day and ask for permanent custody of my son. I don't know what to do anymore, I feel hopeless, scared all the time. I feel like such a failure.
