    this is my first post on here so i am not sure exactly what to do.

    this past august I was told I had depression and anxiety after i thought about killing myself. I struggle a lot with anxiety and recently my struggle with depression has become just that a struggle. My support people changed and I accepted that it was my fault that i lost them as friends, was is it my fault?

    I have always been a big Christian, but am I sinning by not being happy? by seeing the light? by wanting to throw the light in? I told my support person last night that I needed some time away from my phone and I am glad I found this place but can anyone assure me that holding on is the right thing to do.

    first posts are tough - tokk me a couple of weeks to work up the nerve - so good for you on that - and there is no "right way" to post - talk about how you feel, what you like, what you hate, pretty much anything at all - just look around the forum to find the best one to put the post in

    i'm a lapsed catholic here so you can take this with a grain of salt but I can't seem to remember the commandment that makes not being happy or being ill a sin - and depression IS an illness - trust me depression is hard enough without adding your own guilt (i should know)
