Hi Everyone. My name is Jen and I'm here for quite a few reasons. I'm 19 years old, but I've been suffering from depression for as long as I can remember. My mom equates it to all the deaths in my family beginning with my cousin, when I was five. It continued for the next few years with: my brother, my aunt, my uncle, and finally my grandmother. I've managed to suppress most of the details, by now, but as stress levels build through college and I'm dragged into different new lows, I find that maybe I just need to talk to people that understand a little better. Of course, there is more to the story than I am willing to post in an introduction, but I'm here because I need to feel accepted and normal.
