I was thinking today that there is something just so completely normal about sitting around talking to friends about joys and sorrows.  This place makes all of  us "normal".  There is just something very uplifting about that. tongue

I just came here a few days ago, and I already love it here. You are all a blessing to me. I wish we could all go out for drinks and laugh and cry together!

I never thought about it before but it must be comfortable in order for me to make sure I log on everyday and at least read how everyone is doing.

I just wanted to say thanks for this thread. This place feels like 'home'. The people here have been so wonderful to me. I don't think I would have made it this far without each and every one of you guys.

Big hugs to you all,
It's like by setting it free, part of it leaves my soul. That helps me survive. I will continue to survive.

I agree. I don't post very often unless its something that hits home with me. But, finding people that share in the same pain who find strength in one another is really a source of comfort.

I had my first bought with depression 25 years ago. At that time no one gave it a name, no one knew what was going on and no one was there to help. I gutted it out for 8 years on my own, one day at a time and triumphed. I have had two other shorter boughts with depression and didn't find this place until I was actually on meds and in therapy for the latest go round. I'm off of meds and doing really well but I still like to come here. Somehow it is comforting to know that if I ever walk that road again there is somewhere that I can go where I will be understood for the intelligent, strong person that I am even though I occassionally have this problem.
