    Default undercover hubber looking for some help

    Im a regalar member but am not comfortable sharing this stuff through my regular profile.

    For the last few months i have noiced some serious changes in myself, health and personality.

    Im usually a very happy, bubbly, energetic person but lately i have been noticing im not myself.

    I have noticed increasing headaches/migraines (i used to get the occasional one but they are definatly more frequent these days). I am sad so much, i just want to curl up in a ball and sleep. Im angry alot more, i yell at my kids way more than i used to, im not managing as well as i used to. Im not interested in sex with my DH. Im tried ALL the time yet i cant fall asleep at night and wake about 5am every morning. Im unmotivated, i usually find crafts, walking, music, friends, parks very enjoyable but not lately. I just want to sit in front of the tv all day, and the only reason i wan do that is cos i dont have to think about anything. I have a very short fuse, im usually very patient. I dont smile much anymore, i just feel numb alot of the time.
    And, and this is the reason i wanted to go undercover, ive never said this to anyone...not even my DH, sometimes i scratch myself til it bleeds cos it makes me feel better.

    Having said all of that, when im in a good mood, im in a reall good mood, i bounce around and laugh. I get involved in everything and love everything.

    My sister has bipolar and my mum has depression, could i have something wrong with me?

    It sounds as though you could have some depression? Are you able to talk to your doctor about this?
    I know it must be hard but it might be best to try and talk to your DH as well.
    So sorry you are feeling like this.

    I think it would be worth seeing a doctor and telling them how you're feeling and that you've noticed a change and discuss a mental health plan to help you get back to feeling healthier and happier again.

    Its nothing to be ashamed about, and it shows that you have great self awareness that you've noticed these changes and can be so articulate about what's happening. Asking for help also shows strength of character.
