I've been a bit nervous about telling people I know about my depression and semi-suicidal thoughts. The last time I tried it (back in high school), I was dismissed and ignored. But today it all came tumbling out to my best friend . . . and she believed me, and asked what she could do to help. It's a small thing, really, but more than anyone in the Real World (that is, the world outside my monitor) has ever done. I'm crying now . . . but for the right reasons.
