Hello Everyone! I came here because I have been depressed for the last 4 yrs. I am shocked that the majority of people on here are so young! The young ones still have time to change their lives around. Be strong and pull yourself up. You have to have at least one thing positive, and that one thing is the gift of life. I am going to be 46. Most of my life was a living hell. I'm still here. I don't want to hurt the people in my life, and thats my children. They keep me going. Even though I am depressed I take a look at the situation. Remember there is always some one worse off than you. Think about the little children suffering from cancer, the children starving. How do you think they feel??
