So it’s been nearly 2 years since my other half was diagnosed with hd. Two years and one hell of a ride! It’s been well over a year since I was diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety. I’ve been taking medication but I don’t feel like it helps. I still have bad mood swings, erratic emotional outbursts, I still cry at the slightest thing, I’m beyond tired and I’m just empty. Constantly, the only other thing is I’ve now also massively gained weight! Great I know!!
My mum however thinks the medication is working for me. She can tell instantly if I’ve missed a tablet ( yes my mood is THAT bad) it really frustrates me that even after all this time I am still ill. I feel like I should be over it by now. I’m angry with myself because I’m not the best I can be for my family, my children who need me and my other half who is fighting this huge horrible battle knowing that everyday he gets a little worse.
I feel like such a failure
