You could just be depressed and over worked. Do you have anyone to talk to and get some things off of your chest? That could help alot. If you have somone (hubby, relative, etc) you should ask them to watch your little one for a day so you can get a break. Sounds like you are really worn down. I was in your situation at one point and getting away for a weekend was the best thing I did for myself.

right now you are going through alot. it is understandable to feel like you are going crazy. hun if i was going through what you are going through..i would be in the exact same boat. heck i have been before. it is hard but you know you can talk to me. i am your sister. that is why i am here. you know mandy is too self absorbed to listen. plus i live really close..like REALLY close....:D I am here for you! Just remember what goes around...comes around. She will get what is coming to her. ** Note to everyone else** we are sisters and live next door to each other. there are personal matters going on that would make anyone feel like they are having a nervous breakdown

Just let he know that there are others out here who would be glad to talk to her also. Sometimes talking to someone who has no connection whatsoever to the players involved can help. Therapy might also be an option. If money is an issue most therapists work on a sliding scale, and many churches offer counseling for free.

Some of a nervous breakdown's symptons include wanting to hurt yourself or others and/or seclude yourself away from everything. It doesnt sound like you've gone that far so its either that time of the month or you just drifted into a light depression. You may have cabin fever and need a change of scenery or a hormonal inbalance which can be rectified by your doctor quite easily. When I feel like you I take about 350mg of St. Johns Wort (herbal medicine available at any store selling vitamins) and take a nap. Hopefu;;y you'll wake up feeling somewhat better.

If I were you, I'd go see a doctor while the depressions are at manageable levels. A nervous breakdown may happen to anyone regardless of age. I don't know why others are so prone to succumb to this while, there are others who will not no matter the gravity of their problems. Also, I'm pretty sure, to be one with mother nature from time to time will greatly help in unloading your troubles. Talk to those plants and trees around you, tell them your troubles or, you may cry your heart out if you feel the need for it. You'll find that you will find yourself in a much better condition after the exercise.

Yes. GO TO YOUR DOCTOR! Tell him/her ALL your symptoms. You may have a hormonal imbalance. You may just be tired and stressed (with a 2 year hold how not?). You may be suffering from depression, like my daughter. If you are diagnosed with a hormone imbalance or depression, TAKE YOUR MEDICATION. If you would like to talk more about this or just vent, invite me as a friend and I will send you my email.

Depression can hit anyone of any age. I know that my sister, who is 23 and a single mother, has very similar reactions. She takes Paxil, and has been on it for over a year, and it really seems to help. I know that when she doesn't take it, she is very edgy and either screams or cries at the drop of a hat. It helps her to cope with the stress and anxiety of every day life. I hope that things look up for you. Good Luck.

A "Nervous Breakdown" is a popular term - it is not a clinical term - that is often used to describe a mental disorder that a person experiences. It is used for a number of reasons, including: to hide a diagnosis; to avoid the stigma of a diagnosis; not understanding the reasons for certain loss of function (such as not seeing a doctor, but having symptoms); and not accepting a diagnosis among others. A mental breakdown, also known as a nervous breakdown, is a sudden, acute attack of mental illness such as depression or anxiety. Like “sanity” and its derivatives, the term is not recognized by the psychological community. In part, this is because the term has pejorative connotations, while this phenomenon is a normal and relatively common response to chronic stress. Often, the emerging illness is only described as a "breakdown" when the person becomes unable to function, at which point the disorder is advanced. Often, the supposed breakdown is a manifestation of career burnout. The psychiatric community rejects the term "nervous breakdown" and "mental breakdown", in part, because it is not descriptive enough of the actual disorder and symptoms. A common diagnosis that follows such an event is “brief reactive psychosis.” A mental breakdown is not the same as a panic attack, though mental breakdowns can trigger panic. My first diagnosed nervous break was when I was 18 but that was a build up from years of hurting, loss, stress, keeping thing bottle up....I have since then learned to let things out and talk things through and get help is I need it.
