21 & so sad
Thu, 05-12-2011 - 12:56am
Hi I'm new to this and I just wanted to get some tips and opinions about finding better and alternative ways with dealing with this depression. To give you a little info I'm 21 & in college & feel like I've been given more than I can handle. It all started with my ex boyfriend of two years when I was 18 he cheated on me frequently & stressed me out & through it all I had a miscarriage of a pregnancy that I didn't even know of. So mixed with the sadness & the stress from & weight loss & then the miscarriage I fell into a really mild case of depression. My doctor said it wasn't that bad that I needed medication but if I wanted it he'd prescribe it but I didn't want it. So things got a better and we broke up & a year later I met my current ex boyfriend who did the same things as the last but instead of a pregnancy he gave me an std. He claimed he didn't know he had it & that he could've gotten when he was in his hometown so I took his word & we both got treated but come to find out that's not where he got it so we broke up. I'm still kinda hurt about it but to add insult to injury my doctor just told me that due to the std theres a possibility that I can't have kids and now I feel like all I do is cry. I just want to stop crying & be happy again & NOT be dependant on medication...can anyone help?
