Hi,
 
my names Sarah, just come across this message board.  Been suffering from depression for about 15 years now.  Having a downer at the moment (along with the usual insomnia  sad ...  I'm not on medication all the time anymore, i've got tablets to use as and when i need to.
 
I'm 28 years old, and have a young son.  I have a really supportive partner now (never had that before!), who is brilliant with my depression, he just accepts that i go into downers sometimes, and at times they are bad and i cannot speak easily. 
 
Just thought i'd introduce myself, and say hello to you all,
 
Best Wishes,
 
Sarah :-)

Hi Sarah,

Good to see you've found the site, it's been a great help to me since my boyfriend became depressed.

I'm sure you'll find the support you need here

Hi everyone,
 
thanks for posting.  (Sounds like your from somewhere other than the US am I right?)  Yes i'm from the UK in the south.
 
The biggest thing that bothers me about my depression is that i seem to get mentioned second after it!!!!  Had my baby notes a few weeks ago, the first thing it mentions is that i suffer from depression and then goes on to details about me.  The doctors medical report for my university place was the same!  I hate being defined by it all the time, there is so much more to me than just that.  I guess that is just the way of the world.... eyes
Anyway off to get my hair cut, treating myself today! 
 
Best Wishes,
Sarah :-)

Hi saeharr, just wanted to say welcome to HW. I have also suffered from depression for about 25 yrs. It is very hard when they put a label on people like us that suffer from this illness. They don't do that if you suffer from a health issue. But we have to carry on and not worry about what others will say or think about us because life is short and we have to make the most of the time we have here. Even if that means we have to take meds. or seek counseling its worth doing everything we can to make our lives more enjoyable.I wish you all the best and hope to hear from you often.
