Depression symtoms
Am i suffering from depression?
I am always crying, I always feel suicidal, I always feel useless, always irritable, dont have patience.
I am in my mid 20" s, married, have a four year old son.
I feel I need anti-depressants or something cause sometimes I feel so happy then one little thought just triggers this depression and I go into a total dark zone.
Is there professional help I can seek in JHB that is not expensive.

What you describe sounds very like Depression, which is very treatable, so there is no need for you to continue feeling this bad. Antidepressant emdications, and perhaps also CBT style counselling, could make a big difference. The Anxiety/Depression Support Group ( number on this page ) may be able to suggest where in Joburg you might get treatment at more modest cost ; and the Medical School could be useful, too. Work to find your treatment and before long, you couldbe feeling much better than this --- you're worth it !
