I am from Connecticut. I have been suffering with depression for years. I have never been medically diagnosed with depression (I haven’t had the money to see a professional) but this is more than just sadness. It’s been going on for years. I don’t know who to talk to. I live in a small town and there are not a whole lot of Muslims much less Physiologists that are Muslim. It’s hard to see a Doctor that does not understand your religious background. I am a convert to Islam, since 2006. I started off great. But over the years (as my depression got worse) my faith and marriage started to suffer and still suffers to this day. My husband is a very understanding and patient man, Alhamdulillah. But I fear that if this depression continues I may lose him. He is human after all, we all have our breaking points.
