    Hello Jabir, Maybe Counselling would be the best, it is non judgemental and confidential. Have you spoken to your GP there are medications for depression. Keeping active and healthy eating is good for mental health. Depresssion is anger that is turned inward and therefore you need to find out what as caused this. Sometimes it things we cannot change from the past, and i guess that your OCD stems from this. OCD is a form of controlling our emotions. Go to your GP and explain how you are feeling and ask what they can offer.

    Best wishes.

    Elizabeth.

    Hi Jabir. Just because your mother had anxiety and depression issues doesn't mean that you have. You are your own person. If your parents were over-protective you may need to learn how to take responsibilty - but slowly. It will obviously be a bit scary as you gain mastery but the fact that you have achieved going to university, got married and had three kids is a massive achievement already. Having three kids can be overwhelming to anyone and all parents worry about their children. It may be that all you lack is a bit of confidence in yourself. As Elizabeth says, talk to your Doctor (GP) and arrange to talk to a counsellor. Exercise and healthy eating will help your depression. Also I would arrange through your doctor to have your medication re-assessed. Good luck.
