Dealing With Depression When You’re Parenting Alone

Today, I want to address something that I think a lot of people struggle with on some level: Depression.

Maybe it’s situational, maybe it’s hormone-related, maybe it’s something you struggle with all the time, but at one point or another, it hits everyone.

I personally struggle with it a lot, typically every few months.

It starts with little stresses getting under my skin, especially stress about money.  Then life starts getting overwhelming, and, even though I’m a fairly optimistic person, I just feel like I slow down.  Everything feels a little harder to do, and all the things I usually like doing seem far less interesting.
