Proverbs31:28 Posted June 15, 2008 Report Share Posted June 15, 2008 Some of you may have noticed from some of my posts that I have really been struggling with depression lately. I keep thinking the fog has to lift soon but its been over a month and I just keep sliding deeper. Several of my friends have suggested I go IP. Several times I have come VERY very close to giving in to suicidal thoughts. (Most of the time, I end up cutting instead.) It has been clear to me for a couple of weeks that IP is probably the best thing for me, but there is simply no way for that to happen. I have two kids with medical issues. Both have appointments with specialists coming up. And, I am a single mom and their dad is only a weekend dad- he wants no real responsibility. So, even if it is my best interest to go IP, I just don't see how it is possible. I am wondering, from other parents, especially single parents, HOW do you get the care you need for yourself when your kids need you?
