Big hugs. You are having a rough time. Definitely take that step to see a psych. I think you'll feel relief when you do and some light at the end of the tunnel. Sorry for the cliché.
And just take it one moment at a time. And be kind to yourself. Hugs.

Oh honey, what a sh*tty year it has been. Please don't feel embarrassed or ashamed about seeing a psych. I feel as a mother/wife, I often put my own mental health last. It's important to ask for help when you need it. Hang in there lovely, you are a strong woman & you will get through this.

Oh wow, you poor thing. You have been through so much, it is so unfair.
I think it's great you're going to talk to your doctor and get help. A psych is definitely a good idea. There can never be too much support.
You are doing an amazing job x you are fighting and seeking help, that is such a huge step and shows enormous strength x

No advice but big big hugs. It took me a while to go and see a psych about my mental health issues. Thinking of you xx

I haven't read the other replies, but I just wanted to say that whilst it is crucial you see your psych and stay on top of your clinical depression, it is also completely understandable that you feel depressed as you have had an absolutely terrible year. Anyone would feel depressed after experiencing all that! I can understand that you would feel lost without your mum to turn to, I would be the same if I lost my mum - she is my sounding board and my problem solver. I often find writing things down helps, it clarifies my feelings, and when I've slept on it I often know what I need to do. I'm so sorry you're having such a hard time, it won't last forever I promise

Big hugs ElectricPink
My Dad passed away when Dd was 5 weeks old. I was devastated, he was my hero. While I looked ok on the outside, I was barely functioning on the inside. My GP suggested a psychologist and reluctantly I went. It gave me a chance to vent everything, without feeling guilty I was burdening someone with my sadness. She also made me see things from different perspectives and helped to rationalise some of my issues.
I think you should try a session, especially with everything that's happened to you this year.
All the best x

Just an update/vent. Really need to just get it out somewhere.
I'm not coping with life today. It is all just too much....we are having no luck finding somewhere else to live. We need to be out of here in three weeks.
I cannot deal with homelessness on top of everything else that has happened this year. I will be seeing community housing on Monday, and looking into the possibility of applying to the tribunal to get a little bit more time, but I am just stressing so much. I can't deal with this!
This year started out so great, with endless possibilities...and then since my mum passed away it's just been one blow after another. I am feeling so goddamn defeated. If it weren't for the fact that my son needs me, I would honestly just end it all. But I can't inflict that pain on him, so I need to just keep going on....somehow. I don't know how anymore. I'm just tired of everything.

Coping a little bit better today.....still very stressed out, but have a few back up plans in place in case we don't manage to find a house by the end of the month.
Just really really hoping that SOMETHING will finally go right for is this year. Here's hoping! *fingers crossed*
