Ok. I feel like a horrible mom. I'm a 6 year army Veteran and I've been deployed to Iraq twice. I've witnessed a few things that affected me for a long time. I was put on Celexa and then ran out and haven't taken any since because our insurance charged us an obscene amount that we were not going to pay so they cancelled it. I moved all the way out to California to be with my husband. I still, to this day, haven't made friends because I'm taking care of my daughter and I'm a full time student. I have horrible anger problems and massive mood swings all the time all of a sudden. I love my 16 month old daughter and would never ever EVER hurt you. She is what keeps me going day after dat But, I yell. I just get so impatient anymore. I don't know what to do. I am in a failed marriage where all we do is constantly fight. We haven't kissed or hugged or held hands, cuddled NOTHING (not even sex) in months. I can honestly say, that my husband and I cannot stand one another and are only together because of our child. My daughter does things that I KNOW babies do but for some reason, I get so unbelievably irritated that I feel like I just need to leave and scream at the top of my lungs. Please, if anyone has ever been through this or know how to help in any way, please comment. I am in dire need of advice.

My advice is to speak to your doctor about the Celexa. It's my understanding that it is a drug that you have to taper off of, if you simply stop using it, you will have severe mood disturbances. This may be the cause of your intense feelings. If you can't afford Celexa, perhaps another kind of med would be helpful. Good luck!

You really need to talk to a doctor and get some professional help.

There are lots of options out there that may be able to help you, places with sliding scales or ways to get medications significantly cheaper. It's worth looking into. Talk to your doctor or call in to different therapists. Ask them if they can suggest anything to help your situation. It's not healthy for you, your husband or your child to continue on in this way. I'm sure you don't like what you're doing any more than they do.
