I've been anti depressants for 2 months and every since I keep having crying spells and suicidal thoughts for no reason at all. I'm partly sad about not being in a relationship anymore although I know my relationship was bad. I get hurt really badly at work when I see other mothers and father together with their kids and I have to realize that my son and I will never have that. I know its a stupid reason to be crying, but I just wonder what is it about me that makes me do this. I'm just sick and tired of being sick and tired but I stay as strong as possible for my 4 yr old although he sometimes sees me crying. Is this normal? Is it a possibility the anti-depressants are making it worse.
Today we had a children's program and when I see other parents with their husbands or significant others I almost burst into tears. Is this abonormal?

I wouldn't say its abnormal, especially for someone battling depression. Depression can be a nasty thing at the worst of times, I suffer from mild anxiety and depression and I've had similar thoughts when seeing happy people and couples, as I'm not very happy either and have little prospect of being in a relationship, so it depresses me as well when I see that. Now I don't cry, but that may have more to do with me being a guy, but the best thing to do is just focus on other things, your son, a hobby, anything that interests you, and try to be more optimistic, but I don't think its abnormal.0
