    Hi everyone
    Post marital depression is something that is least discussed on. And i guess the numbers in india this will be way higher if diagnosed.
    Please share your experiences if anyone is going through this phase.
    And if anyone has come out of this phase.

    It might be helpful for a lot of people out there..


    I for one have been dealing with this for quite sometime now. And there are times where i would just like to give up because of the depression.
    I have had so many side effects due to this. I can't remember so many memories because it eats up your brain.. fluctuations in health.. the feeling of worthlessness..so many more..
    But also try my best to push myself and put up a calm composed face just so that some people, who care, don't worry about me.

    It would be helpful to know how everyone of you have coped or coping with post marital depression

    I haven’t really heard of this, but I have heard of post-wedding blues. It is the feeling of emptiness after all the carefully planned wedding festivities. It’s this the type of thing you think you are going through?

    @BhumiBabe Yes post wedding blues is a thing which some people do go through but post-marriage depression is different. And I didnt have any post wedding blues because the stress of certain things before and during wedding, I was just happy the day was done..


    @Angela123 Even I didn't know about it until recently. Just for a reference/idea check out this link.

    Not all of it is true for all but yes some parts are true.

    And giving a name to what we are going through is more helpful to recognize, acknowledge and work on it.

    The only thing I can relate to on that article is how DIL is not accepted as one of their own in the DH's family. After the wedding I have heard my MIL saying "she belongs here now (DH's family", but I can see the double standard when it comes to everyday life. She cares more about DH and grand child than me, when we all are in the same situation. It stings but, i believe it is too much to ask for!! I know her very well, that's why and I hear about what she is capable of from DH. So I do not expect anything from her.but, I am looped in all important matters and DH makes sure I am included, even though he is protective.

    Depression is depression whatever the causes or whatever the names given to it. .It's basically you are not feeling good enough to enjoy life, or feeling not able to cope life's demands..

    Are you suffering from anything that is written in the article. What are your depression symptoms exactly?

    Yes I completely agree depression is depression irrespective of the tag that we place on it. Sometimes it becomes a problem when you need to find the root cause of it. Depression as such is not a widely talked and accepted topic, so finding a solution is difficult most times. And forums and experiences do help people to understand it.

    Yes I have suffered/suffering through something in the article, which has made me not enjoy my life or not be able to cope with somethings.
    There are many more small things which are out of this article,but certain times what people forget is that the smallest action affects people in a good or bad way, and categorizing these things might help people to talk to the concerned person.Or ignore the concerned person.
