I was really depressed while I was pregnant with both babies, but felt better after they were born. I know it might not feel like it right now, but I think you are a beautiful, hard-core, kick-ass inspiration and I'm glad to know ya!

Oh my dear, depression isn't a moral failure. If you had diabetes would you be saying you're morally obligated to be 'bigger' than your need for insulin? Honey, I'm not chiding, I did that stupid shit too. All it got me was stuck in a hellish marriage for far too long and a date with a bottle of Stoli and one of Vicodin. Your pregnancy is yours to manage, but PLEASE don't go there with the 'I'm bigger than this' mindset about having a chemical imbalance. Okay? Much love, ~LA
