I was on another message board for depression before I found this one (I won't mention names in case there are people also from that board here). At first it seemed like a normal run of the mill web site, but I just found that this year it's become a message board full of total hypocrites. To be part of the board you've got to pretend to be happy and jolly all the time or you get completely ignored or have your posts deleted. When I started noticing that anything I posted was getting deleted, that's when I left. It takes a special talent to say they can get shunned by people all across the world, one I'm not too proud of mind you. Truth is I've been down for so long that life just seems impossible and coming out of this slump is more like mission impossible. I wish I could make at least one friend instead of always finding so many people who hate me before they know me.
