    Hi! My name is Carol and I am a 31 years old brazilian who suffer from depression.

    First I would like to apologize for my terrible English. Unfortunately it won´t be possible for me to talk in chat or PM to anyone because it is hard to communicate in English.

    I am a journalist and today I got a job after one year unemployed. That's good, but I 'm in a hard time. It is now easy to stay strong.

    My depression started when I was 15 years old and since then I have tried many medicines. I am now on Venlafaxine.

    I am glad to find this forum. Nice to meet you.

    Hi Carol, welcome to SF :) I don't think your English is terrible at all! I can understand you just fine. I'm sorry to hear that you are having a hard time, but I hope being here will be helpful to you.

    We have a lot of people that don't have english as 1st language, like myself. No need to be shy about it!

    Thank you all for the answers.
    It's been good for me taking Venlafaxine, I feel like this is helping me. But I am feeling anxious and depressed often.
    It's really good to find this forum.
