i have depression. it seems to cycle. I'm good for a period of time (weeks/months) and then something comes up and it strikes me in such a debilitating way that I can't function. i can't read a book because i can't focus, anything requiring mental energy gets tossed aside. I try different things to cycle out but i feel like a fish that just flipped out of its fishbowl struggling to breathe. strangely enough, when I hit a low and come to this site it bumps me up a little and helps me get out of the cycle. don't know why but thanks for the site.
