I have to brag on my Honey. He's hard on me at times, but it's because he loves me and has to keep me in line. He also pitches in when I'm having a bad day or when I'm spazzing out. If I get too low, he takes me to the hospital if he can't handle me. If he can, he knows what to do. He's great.

Once my husband suffered depression he had a clue but since he refused help with his he couldn't understand why I needed help with mine. My sisters understand because this seems genetic Mom and both sisters have it. My kids don't have the time or inclination to worry about my life. especially since Dad is gone I might ask for help

My DH is bi-polar but he seems to think he can be the only one to get depressed. He gets mad at me if I let him know I am depressed, so I keep it to myself. The only other family I have is my Aunt and she just does not get it at all. My psychologist and family doc are my support to get me through plus my friends here at Sparks now.

I co-lead a PRIVATE team for adult females of child sexual abuse. If you would be interested in joining our team please sparkmail me for an invite.

I co-lead losing weight and disabled

My partner doesn't understand much, but she does pitch in and do more around the house when I am not functioning. So in that way, it is very helpful. My therapist is the best place and then spark is helpful too.

Sad to say that no one really helps me probably because they really don't understand my disease. My only shoulders are my therapist's and nurses. Not even my husband understands. I usually get a comment such as "are you depressed AGAIN"? I want to kick him where it hurts when he says that to me but obviously, I hold back. My girls are 21 and 23 and in their own worlds with work and college. Nikki knows I cut on occassion. She saw my whole arm by accident but she just got really pi**ed off at me and took me to the hospital. Thank God for the therapists I guess.

Had a surgery in July. The weight has been creeping up on me since then. Think I was nervous about exercising. Not an excuse. Seriously was worried about damaging myself. Lost 100lbs back in 2009....20lbs back in past 3 1/2 months. Gotta get active....

How do those surrounding you support you and lift you up when you need it? How have they helped you?
