    Hey everyone I hope i did this right. i am sort of new to forums. Just wanted to see if this could help me out any. So here is my story. I am 22 years oldI have been dealing with depression for about 8 years now. mostly started when my uncle passed away from aids. i was there in the hospital room when they pulled him off life support, he had been partying with some friends and was doing some kind of drugs ended up having a seizure and broke his jaw, got infected and died from that. that was in june or july 01 then in may of 02 my best friend killed himself. i was still not over the passing of my uncle. then Everything was ok for a while. I have been living Right out side of new orleans for the last 3 years. since katrina hit down there. and with this recent hurricane season i had to evacuate I am now living with my boyfriend at my fathers house in a small town in tn. being the small town it is, there is no job openings at least none that i can do myself. i have bi lat carple tunnel not fun at all. and i have been falling back into a deep state of depression, and thoughts of suicide and cutting are slowly coming back. I am seeking profession help, at least i realize that i need it. thats my story. I can be a very out going very happy person at times. but as of late....none of that
