It is has been awhile since I have been able to post on this forum.  I have been extremely ill and just was released from the hospital yesterday. My depression has overtaken every aspect of my life lately and has left me with almost every part of me destroyed.  It has taken everything I am to even turn on my computer and move my fingers to type.
 
As I read the forum, I realized that life went on without me as I thought.  What a sad feeling it is too see that as much as you would like to believe that people will miss you, your presence is only really important to one person ultimately, ME.  I know that there are people that have been worried about me and I want them to know that I appreciate the fact that I was missed and when I saw that I received emails, it softened my heart to know that i was missed.
 
I guess the biggest thing I learned was that when s..t hits the fan, me and only me can ask for help. 
 
I want to thank my Angel for being there for me!
 
This depression has been the hardest thing I have ever experienced in my life.  It has taken everything that means anything to me, it has hurt the people I love and it has hardened my heart to anyone who tries to take anything else from me. There are things in my life I refuse to give up and I will never EVER at any cost give the few things in my life I have left to depression.
 
I am doing ok and will try to get better every day.

Teresa,
 
I am glad you are home from the hospital and that you did post.  Unless you have been where some of us have been, it's hard to understand that what may seem like a little thing to some people (posting) can be a major step for us.
 
Please try to let us know how you are doing.  You know we care about you. For now, just take baby steps.  You know how to do it.
 
Love & Hugs!

There are only a few things that truly keep me going and one of them is the people here on healingwell.
 
Thanks so much to you and others that make me feel validated when that is all I need. :)

Hi Teresa,

Its so nice to hear from you again and see you active on the forums. Please just take this one step at a time and dont try and take too bigger steps. It is sad to see that life has moved on when we have not been around, but that is not to say that we cant still be part of that life. It simply means we have a bit of catching up to do. You will always be a member of this family and we would all miss you if you were to leave (So please dont! lol)

Big British Hugs

Teresa,

Welcome back my dear friend. Yes, it is true that life does go on, but it is such a better place when you're involved in it. I'm so glad that you're getting back in the saddle so to speak. Thanks for answering my e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you on the forum. Sometimes, it takes alot of bravery just to turn on the computer or answer the phone. Just keep breathing my friend and it will all get easier.

Lots of luvins

I am so sorry this happened to you. I go through that as well, I am happy and I'm OK and then so easily I can slip and fall into
depression. You are a very strong person for coping with this and never forget that.

There are no words to tell you all how loved I feel!
 
How could I have known that day so many months ago when I joined this forum that it would be such a vital part of my mental health and recovery.  The depths I have fell into have been the worst I have ever known in my life, in fact as some of you know, depression almost won this time.  However, with God by my side, here I am in need of repair.
 
I am undergoing intensive therapy and intervention on a daily basis.  This leaves me overwhelmed on some days so there may be days when I wont be posting.  Please trust that I am doing the best I can and try not to worry.
 
This beast is strong but God is mighty!!
 
Thank you dear friends, you mean the world to me!!!!!!!

Teresa,

Take as much time as you need to heal. It is a long process and Im sure we all understand here if there are a couple of days when you dont post. Just keep us up to date on how you are getting on. 

All the best & Big British Hugs

And the same goes for me as well. I would love to be able to do more for you, but being on the wrong side of the atlantic does cause a few logistical problems! Feel free to email me if you need me and I wish you all the best

Hi Teresa

Since I'm a newbie, I'll just say I've been to hell and back as well.  You have a lot of friends here to help you, I hope to become one as well.

Wishing you well,

Doug
