I just wondered about this because I don't. Not personally, not online and not anybody I have ever read about. But I was hoping someone out there might. I've suffered from depression for all of my adult life so far and all of my teens, to even IMAGINE getting better now and being 'normal and functional' seems so far fetched I literally cannot even envisage it. I just wanted to know if anybody had heard of a person who had suffered from chronic long term depression and was able to find some sort of a normal life, in time and get help. I suppose if anyone did have a story like this or a news/web article it might be kind of healing for others (incl. myself) on here to see that you can get better. Give us all a little hope. Fingers crossed somebody has something. I think it'd do me the world of good to read it.
