Hi everyone!

I am new here & I really hope being here helps me mentally & emotionally. My name is, Leslie. I am 25 years old. I have been married to my husband for 3 years, and in November we will be together a total of 6 years. My husband has an 11 year-old son. We have a zoo (3 cats, 2 dogs, a chinchilla, 2 gerbils, 4 lizards & many fish; this is my favorite part of my life). I am a former Certified Medical Assistant. I graduated from a local college & got my Associates degree May 2016, I got into work right away & remained in the medical field until I was fired from my last job Feb 2020. 2020 was rough… I was very sick, almost to the point where I could have had a stroke or could have died. I was diagnosed with Menieres Disease September 2019 & recieved my Diabetes diagnosis June 2020. I have been battling anxiety & depression for quite a long time (my uncle committed suicide in 2010, I trace it becoming a big problem after this event), but didn’t start talking about medication treatment until a few years ago. I also have been struggling with migraines & still do not have an answer to why I get them.

Anyway, I have been struggling more than usual since I lost my job last year & I feel at a loss. I’m confused with my emotions… not sure if my marriage will hold up. I’m struggling with being a step parent. I don’t expect to ever feel 100% again, but I just want to feel normal again. I did have a therapist who I saw last year, but that did not work out for me. I’m hoping joining support groups like this will help me cope, and maybe gain friends who I can relate to.

Sorry for the long post, I’m just not sure where to start.
