I feel so alone and empty yet i have a family

Iv been with my partner for just over 2 years he is disabled with a lower leg a amputation and bad knee on the same leg, we have an 11 month old son and a 15 year old step son, i have everything to live for but i feel sooo lonely and empty, i cant see anything in my future, the only thing keeping me going is my son.
i am already on antidepressants and seeing a mental health nurse but after 4 months of this i still feel lost, confused and anxious,
iv suffered depression since i was 14 and i am now 23.
i dont no why im writing this i think im just hoping some 1 will enlighten me or something.

Hi Marti18....When you get down get out and talk with some of your friends...Don't concentrate on any problems...You also may be having post-partum from having the baby...You may want to see your doctor and get some medication to help you out...Take care...

Honey, write when you are bothered...In the meantime try and find something that keeps you happy...Like a hobby or joining a church group...Don't dwell on the negative and think of your baby boy....I know sometimes things can get tough, but then think of the next day and it being better...Good luck and take care...
