    My name's Rob.

    I'm a 22-year-old college student from Ohio.

    I've been depressed for the better part of my life, mostly because my family just loves to rub it in my face constantly that I'm not "one of them" - I stand out like a sore damn thumb.

    I hate hypocrites. People who say that they are supportive of people in need, but in the next breath demonize and judge me for revealing a side of depression that doesn't fit in with their emo stereotypes - i.e., wishing that I could have died of cancer instead of my uncle. Apparently, I'm a monster.

    Just thought I'd give you forewarning.

    You are NOT a monster, the people that are monsters are the people who are supposed to love and care for you but instead criticize you for not being just like them.

    And I'm sorry about your uncle.

    :welcome: to SF. I love your forum name :) Sorry to hear about the circumstances that lead you to us, but am glad you are here to get extra support. Do not listen to your family. You had no control over being depressed and they should help support you through it instead of putting you down. It is an illness, not an oddity.
