    It'll all work out, Tetyana. I can understand how you're feeling. My husband left for Navy training a month after our daughter was born, and for months at a time was gone. We had 6 months back together, but now he's been deployed on his ship. I had post-partum depression as well, though I didn't take any medicine but probably should have...I was a wreck. I cried all of the time. We're here for you. Talk to us whenever you need, or if you just need to vent a little bit.

      You can do this Tetyana. I know it seems like you can't right now. There are a lot of women here on the site that are raising children without a father, period. And they are just as scared as you, please reach out to them.

      Raising a baby is NOT easy. And it's okay to feel like you can't do it, just breathe hon. Breathe and take one day at a time, one step at a time. Enjoy that little bundle of beautiful baby that you brought into this world. I'm glad that the medicine is helping and I encourage you to seek out the advice of a physician.

      Thinking and praying for you. Hugs mama.

          Hugs, That must be really hard and stressful, but I think if you take the meds and focus on your daughter and remember she needs you and your doing great. Take it easy and ask for help from your parents or friends who can help you get through this.

            Aww sweetie I am sorry you are struggling. I also suffer from depression and anxiety and I know it is extremely hard to deal with. I am also at home with the kids all day while my fiance works and he works very long days most times. That alone is hard for me so I cant even imagine how much harder it must be for you since he isn't there. I really hope you can find a good support group. Medication only helps so much. But knowing that you have people who will back you up and support you and simply just be there for you when you need it most. Do you have any family or friends who would be able to come help you or maybe even give you a break from time to time? Often my parents will take my girls for the weekend and take them out places so they can not only spend time with them but it also gives me some what of a break since I only have my son to focus on. I am always here if you need someone to talk to who can relate. Maybe not completely relate to your situation but relate in a sense.

              I am at high risk for Post Partum depression after my baby is born because I suffer from bipolar illness. Same medical condition of PP yet different circumstances. My hugs to you and warm thoughts your way. My fiancé and I may have to separate for a short time if we don't have our housing situation figured out before our baby is born. Continue to reach out and ask for help. We all want to help you get through this :-) This is a temporary rough patch, and this too shall pass. I hope you're under the care of a doctor. Keep us posted.
