Question: Can you be depressed part time!? I know strange question, please read!.!.!.!?
I'll try to make this as short as possible!. My bf and I have been together 3 yrs!. Almost a year ago he cheated and moved out!. We've worked on that and are getting ready to move back in together next month!. We have 4 kids between us (his daughter from 1st marriage, my 2 from 1st marriage and 1 together) I'm also in school every Saturday and work 24 hours overnight on weekends!. He comes from his city (an hour and a half away) friday night till monday morning to watch the kids while I go to school & work!. Now, during the weekends I feel great!. Full of energy and my head is clear!. During the week all I want to do is sleep and I feel so depressed!. I will go 3 days w/out even showering or leaving the house!. I just can't seem to function!. I do take care of the kids basic needs but things like going to the park or whatever are too much!. It got a lot worse when my car broke down so I'm stuck in this city all week without a car!. I'm alone in this city!. I don't know anyone and don't have a sitter to even get out!. Do you think it's possible to suffer from depression only during the week!? I know it sounds funny but what else could it be!?!? Www@Answer-Health@Com
It could be a form of depression - but basically, I think you've put yourself on "Hold"! Do you have all 4 kids during the week!? That is exhausting - but you'd do better and be a better mom if you got yourself on a routine!. Get up, shower, breakfast, get kids dressed (if they're not in school) - go for a walk (there has to be something to do in a city - park, museum, playground, duck pond, zoo, library,etc!.-be an explorer!) Make an appointment to do something out of the house at least once a week!.(Take a lunch is your finances are low)!. Also- I don't want to rain on your parade -But, you've put a lot of time and energy into this BF - You might need to assess how that relationship is working for you!. 3 years is a long time to decide if you're meant to be together for the rest of your life!. When you dress up and get out of the house - try making some new friends - church is a good place to meet people!. Sometimes you need other adult company - other moms with children-that you can talk with, have playdates, and socialize with!. Get out and get on with your life - you're not getting younger!

This sounds alot like anxiety to me, Hoever depression does not have to be as deep as it is at others!. If you lift youself from the depression long enough to enjoy your self, smile or even laugh you do not have tha all encompassing depression that so many people do!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
