Hello, I’m 20 years old and I have depression.

It all started after I had my daughter at 18. At that time it was considered postpartum depression. I never had thoughts about hurting myself or my daughter but I did have bad thoughts about myself.

It started because I was embarrassed about my weight, I felt ugly I was so used to being that size 0 and I went from 0 to 9 in just a few months.

And a month after having my daughter I found out my spouse was talking to another girl. That made it worse. I never told anyone I didn’t talk to anyone about my problems because I was so embarrassed.

Months go by, and I still haven’t told anyone I ended getting on the implant birth control and that made my depression worse. Because of the hormones in it, my body didn’t react well to it and I ended up gaining another 30 pounds.

I was at my worst I cut people off cause I was so embarrassed by myself. I would go to family gatherings but would only stay for like an hour and go back home eventually. 2 years later I finally got the courage to take it out and I started working out and trying to gain my confidence again.

And when I had my birth control removed literally 2 days later I felt so relieved as if all my problems had been lifted off my shoulders.

Ever since then I have less depressed thoughts, I’m more open to talking to people about my problems I’ve lost about 20 pounds since and I’ve sought help for depression which helped so much.
