St Johns wart is a good supplement but it interferes with a lot of antidepressants.  If you don't want to get on antidepressants I guess St Johns wart will help but a lot of it will be cognitive things to change your thoughts and feelings.
Good Luck

Actually the early 20s are a hard time for a lot of people.  As you start facing the reality, especially with kids, you still have fresh thoughts of what it was like to be without problems, or at least complicated life problems.  Expectations of thinking you missed your time to be a young free woman are pipe dreams.  When you are this young with all this going on, like you said, you don't have much time to work on yourself anymore.  Do you have a husband or someone who can watch over them for an hour a day.  I met a therapist one time that told me he takes 630-730 in the evening for himself.  He doesn't answer the door, the phone, or deviate from his routine unless there is an emergency.  He uses that time to play.  He build kites or does origami as well as a lot of other things.  Play like a kid some times.  This world gets easier as you get older and problems that you made it through years before will sit up the foundation for your capacity to handle new problems.  I didn't get into a serious relationship until I was 27 because I was scared.  You are already there but you can handle it.  Fear is love going in the wrong direction.

Jeex that is alot of responsibility for someone as young as you.You must be strong.That being said,You are only a few days clean.Things will level out with your feelings over the next month if you stay clean.I would try to just focus on that right now.exercise will help your mood and your psychological strength also. Just hang in there.  You are awesome!
