Hi All, I will be back in a bit, going to town...........and I will try to help you.
Deb, Hey there, your font is fine can you size it down to a 10 or 12 before copying to the forum to save the room. Thanks sweetie.
Wow, I am impressed................you are all doing great sharing. Somtimes being able to just get it out and talk about it helps with the depression.
A lot of people need to be able to express their feelings and their fears. I am glad to see this happening. We have lots of threads about the treatments and the surgeries but your feelings are a large part of who you are so share here if you want to. No one will ever be forced to talk or criticized here for any feelings they bring up.
Everyone is entitled to their own feelings but depression hurts, I know, I have depression and I hid it for 24 years from friends. I just kept it inside of me. I feel safe coming to HW and talking about it.

I offer you support and my email is open if you need anything. Bless each of you and lots of hugs too.
