Am I depressed?

Sometimes I wonder...It's hard being a working mom and taking care of 2 little girls (and a husband). I seem to get very overwhelmed easily and can't focus. I have let things slide - things that I used to love to do and was good at.

About 9 months after I had Taylor, I finally called my ob and he gave me something to take. It seemed to help but I didn't know if it really was or if it was all in my head. I didn't like the sexual side effects though and that summer, while on vacation, I quit taking it. I thought I was ok.

Some days I am ok, but other days I just can't focus. I have trouble getting back to people at work and staying on top of things. I can't seem to keep on top of things for my mom's group either.

When I read online about depression, that could be me.

I have my prescription in my purse and have been tempted to take it, but, again, I don't like the side effects. I know, I should just call my doctor about this. It's time for my yearly physical anyway.

I will pray that God will help you through this trying time in your life. Have you tried to get away and have just "you" time, or a girls weekend with some friends? It may not cure it but it may help.

I just happened upon your blog off of the lazy organizer's. I just filled my prescription for Zoloft yesterday. I have never taken it before but figure this has got to be better then yelling at my family all the time.
Hope you are feeling better soon.
