I am new to this site and have spent a long time reading through some of the posts and it seems to make me feel even worse for posting anf feeling the way I do.
I am a 30 year old man from the UK and have a wife and son who is 4 years old. My wife is now pregnant with our second child.
Just before Christmas I started feeling quite low, lethargic and ver snappy all the time. Didn't enjoy doing the things I used to so I went to the doctros and they said I had depressiona nd gave me some tablets (not sure what they were). I never spoke to anyone else within my family about this, not even my wife. I took the tablets for a while but couldn't see that they did anything and thought I was just being silly and to get on with it as I have eveything anyone could ever want.
These feelings never really went away and recently they have come back with a vengence. No matter how much I sleep I am constantly drained and cannot motivate myself. I struggle to concentrate at work and at home and just feel so low.
I hate the way I feel because all I continually feel like is that I am letting my wife and son down so much. I love my son more than anything and he is my world and he will always want to play with me but I find myself being dismissive and then I hate myself for it but cannot snap out of this cycle.
Writing this post I find myself getting quite emotional because it is the first time I have been openly honest about how I am feeling. I am sorry that this probably seesm so trivial compared to a lot of posts on here but an help anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated.
