I went on this site and entered some of my symptoms and they all had something to do with depression. As far as I know it does run in my family but even though it runs in the family I have had a lot of things happen to me that probably would cause me to be depressed. So how do you know if it's hereditary or caused by what you've gone through personally. My husband was addicted to crack for 10 years. He brutally beat and sodomized me one day after I had an affair with a man from my work at the time. At that time we had two children. I later went back to him even though I felt repulsed by him. I'm not scared of him. I just don't love him or even like him for that matter. We went on to have a third child. He eventually went to jail for the drug use. I took him back when he got out. I wish I could leave with my children but I am not financially able. I feel trapped and sick every day. We don't sleep together. We just co-exist. I know I need to see someone, but a few years ago when saw a doctor about this he just gave me prozac and that made me feel terrible so I stopped taking it haven't done anything about it since. HELP!!!!
