New shrink seemed more concerned with Momma's depression than kid's woes. Told Momma Kid's troubles not her fault ...then told momma her depression is not helping kid. =fault in Momma's eyes.
This is always how it is. The classic therapy question is "tell me about your mother" because we're always assumed to be part of the problem. Sometimes we are, and sometimes we're not, but the pity-accusations are always there regardless.

Sure, it's always somebody else's fault, probably your mother, is heard so often it's a meme.
Mama's depression isn't a fault, it's a ongoing contributing factor.

Dear Anonymous, I struggle every day too. Some days are better and some days are worse, but it never completely goes away. I keep putting one foot in front of the other because I am needed by my family. All I can do is trust that if I keep trying, someday it will get better.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm kinda confused, is Momma the original poster, anon?

I went thru 10 yrs of clinical depression from 1991 to 2002, no crying but pretty bad and many docs as I believed it was thryoid issues and the docs and their obsession with numbers, said "no you are fine"....telling me I'm fine when I was NOT.,....

They just kept hitting me with cocktails of anti depressant drugs, which did NOTHING.....it was thyroid...

Had a great D.O. who worked on my back for years and he finally "got it", put me on Armour thyroid and in 4 days depression was gone....that was 18 yrs ago...never to return and I take thyroid support daily, pretty low dose now.

Thyroid is so missed and it's so IMPORTANT and WE ARE NOT NUMBERS... we are symptoms and there are some 66 symptoms of sluggish thyroid and Depression is right up there.....

At 82 I don't struggle with depression, chronic pain YES from OA, but I manage..

Wonder if the poster is still around as well.

If you're reading this, OLD FRIEND, please, *please* post and say hi, then you can resubmerge to trolling depth.

You know who you are.

Well Momma's still here. Always has been. And is still depressed. And still has damn good reason to be. But maybe coping a little better, learning to recognize when it's just the depression "talking". Momma gave up on the shrinks and started taking gropeseed oil and feeling. Many of you know who momma is, and Momma thanks those people for their ongoing support and discretion. Momma has, however, never been comforted by the tailposters who pop up occasionally but do not read for comprehension before sticking their 2 in and opening old wounds.

Jamin, the anonymous account is used by regular posters here--everyone knows the password to it--when we want to talk about sensitive stuff and don't want it to be as traceable as public forum posting tends to be. I'm not sure what you find "unbelievable," but I can assure you that when taken in context, anon's post makes perfect sense.

Oh, well one has to be a longtime member to know all the quirks around here, but not much time left for Cellar anyway as I'm reading today.

I still say Thyroid is so missed for so many health issues....either missed totally, wrong med and or wrong dose....
