Welcome to HealingWell and the Depression forum. I am so glad you found us. You are right, there is something comforting about baring your soul to the members of HealingWell and still being able to be anonymous.
I am so sorry for all you have been through and I agree with the others, Karen is very wise and her words of wisdonm are right on.You obviously recognize your stressors and know when your spinning out of control. Taking action to stop the downward spiral tells me you are a strong person that has depression. Let us help you. We cannot take the place of a good therapist but we will listen with an open mind and we do not judge.
I have had depression for 26 years and I have had a big meltdown but I refused to let depression rule my life so I know I will have down times but I can find that light at the end of the tunnel. I think you can to and reach out, take our hand.............we are here to help.Gentle Hugs
