Hi, and welcome to HW.
Well, Ashbird, with not much to say...you actually said it all...or at least definitely enough for me to say I know exactly what you are saying and how you feel. It is hard when we are battling our demons and our families just don't get it. You try to explain it to them but they just have that blank stare and we just give up trying to explain it. Everyone here at the Depression forum of HW gets it, you don't have to feel alone anymore, we are all here to help one another and help you....sometimes just to listen when you need to vent. Please keep posting, we understand and it helps SOOOO much to talk to someone who finally listens and is not judging you.

To handle yourself, use your head...to handle others, use your heart
I'm going to smile like nothing is wrong, act like everything is perfect, and pretend its not hurting me.
