    I'm obviously new here, checking in. Honestly don't know why I registered here, cause it probably not going to help me..... But whatever we'll see I guess.

    Hi there, John. :shake: Hope the forum helps! I also happen to be a fellow who once had a Kermit avatar myself. Methinks you have great taste! ;)

    Hi there, I'm Kinda new here too and wasn't sure what, if anything, I would get out of it. What I have found is a group of people that I can be open and honest with without judgement. I have found people who have experienced much of the same feelings and experiences that I have and are always willing to offer advice or just a kind word of encouragement. I hope you find the same and share more of your story with us. Take care and best wishes:)

    I've fought depression my whole life. I watched my mom die at 12years old, watched my dad die 3years ago. And now I'm completely empty/alone......

    I feel as.if my job here is done...

    I too have been fighting depression for a long time, but it was sent into overdrive last year. My mother commited suicide very unexpectedly and we found out in her letter that my grandma had died a week before that and she just left her in her house to rot. Shortly after that when my 9yr old daughter found out how her grandma died, she too overdosed and was in the icu for 4 days. After that we lost our house to foreclosure and had to find a new home for our dog, which we loved tremendously, because we couldn't take him with us. Earlier this year my husband was laid off because of an injury he sustained hunting. I lost my job in august and now we are in danger of having our vehicle reposesed. It has been a very difficult time and honestly, if it weren't for my kids, I would probably be dead. I know your experiences are different and affect you in different ways, but don't give up. Hopefully this forum will offer you some comfort by letting you know that you are not alone and we are always here, whether its for advice or just to listen.
