I am 28 years old, married mother of two. The first time i suffered with depression was when i had my daughter 7 years ago. i went on the medication and had the counselling which didnt really help. i came off the tablets and everthing was fine, even went on to have a son although i swore i would never again have another child!! honestly everything was brilliant, until my eldest brother stephen commited suicide 2 years ago. that day, a part of me died with him. i spent all my time looking after everyone else, my mum my dad my other brothers and my sister. everyone except me. the doctor said that i had been in denial for about 6 months and now the grief was coming back with avengence!! back on the tablets, been on them for a year. for a while i think they worked, but now im not so sure!!!!
