I know there used to be something like this but there ended up being a bit of drama there. I am really struggling with my depression lately and would like to connect with other women who know how I feel and hopefully pick up some new coping skills. Though I am no therapist, I am also willing to offer my ear for support. I am 17 weeks pregnant with my 4th baby and started taking Zoloft at 10 weeks. Since then, all day, I picture myself in my head screaming and tearing my hair out. I can never calm myself down, I take offense to nearly everything (SO deleted the history on my laptop last night bc he gets embarassed about porn, i'm really sad), I constantly need reassurance that I'm loved and I'm driving everyone in my life away. My coping skills since I quit smoking in February are: cutting and reading books. I want to be done cutting forever but it's actually hard. I started when i was 9 or 10. 

If anyone has some advice or would like to join the conversation, please do.

I'm so sry, that you r going through this. Idk what its like to cut I have never done that. But I struggle with bad anxiety and  panic attacks. Everyday I struggle with this and its so hard, since I had dd 4months ago I don't even want to leave my house. I do the same I push my bf away and want to just give up sometimes BC I get so upset an angry over the littlest things I hate it an want to stop but I can't help it. I wish I had advice to help u. All u can do is take it one day at a time. Gl and I'll pray for u hun
