I've been extremely depressed lately. Chronic depression runs in my family and I've been diagnosed with it before. I'm ready to get this pregnancy over with. Julie is huge and I can't handle not being able to get up and go like I used to. I've always been an active person and I hate that I can't even lean over a table or sit up straight without hurting somewhere. It's even become hard to sleep. I can't get out of the car without some kind of struggle beforehand and I'm surprised I can get off the couch without my husband's help.
I know that most of that is normal, but is it normal to be so depressed and angry about it? I can't even make a bowl of oatmeal without crying because the damn microwave nuked it and made it explode everywhere. (I think it was pretty logical that I got pissed but still...)
Have you ever dealt with this kind of depression and how did you do it? Without therapy, seeing as how I can't afford it...
