I’m realizing that I am struggling to mask my depression in my everyday life. Because of this it is obvious to my kids, my husband and everyone that knows me that something is wrong and it draws them away from me. Nobody wants to deal with sadness all the time so I am stuck dealing with it alone. I have 1 friend. She is the only person in my life that I’ve chosen not to burden with my problems which is probably why our friendship has lasted this long. She’s planning to move to Texas next year then that’s it for me. But besides that I feel lonely. In my 28 years of life I haven’t met anyone who feels, thinks or acts like me so I am forced to mend myself to what others consider to be “normal” I don’t know what I need but I do know I need to fix it so I can be the strong wife and mother I need to be.

@AnonymousNeek I definitely relate to how you feel. Have you talked to your family about how you're feeling? Maybe they can tell that's something's wrong like you said but they don't know how to react? Or what about opening up to your friend, if she's been your friend for a long time I'm sure she'll understand. It can't feel good keeping everything inside.
