Hey everyone, First, I'd like to thank anyone who has taken the time out of their day to read this. To be honest, Im partially nervous and somewhat skeptical to explore and embrace this forum. Depression has taken control of my life and I'm struggling to recover my old self whom I miss dearly. I hope that I've made the right decision by attempting to find solace here. For years I've held a false bravado and convinced myself that I was strong, needed no one and could fight all my battles alone. I'm defeated and waving my white flag. I just hope to find a support system who will help me put life into perspective again and vice versa.
