> I have passed 40 three years ago. My story is I feel I have been mildly depressed all my life but always too busy to accept. I would get angry and could stay in the black mood for hours and hours. Lots of childhood issues. I had 4 children by the time I was 30. My x was verbally abusive and on several occasions physically. I remarried 5 years later to the finest man in the world. We bought a small textile mill in NC and worked 60+ hrs a weeks. All the work helps you mask your deep feelings. We have 2 daughters together and with the birth of the last I stayed home. All of a sudden I had a lot of time on my hands to think and it wasn't good. I would obsess about the dumbest things and just go into the black moods. All the while I'm trying to function as a parent to 6 children. My husband sat me down and said it was time to go and talk to someone. I have been on Celexa for 3 months and my god the world is wonderful. I feel healed. I am a better mother than I'd thought - truth is my kids will all tell you I'm the best- but now I like myself. I feel like i'm awake and loving life. My children range in age from 22 to 1 1/2. 1 college grad 1 college junior 1 in high school 1 in grammer and 2 at home. I feel Celexa has given me the opportunity to be a better Mom and I love being in my 40's and loving life. I only wish I had gotten help sooner. Having kids is a wonderful lifetime choice. But I understand not a choice for all. Well I've babbled on forever but thats my story. I love Celexa and I love enjoying my family and life. God bless.
