 Doing better .  I am trying to get back to eating right and running and see if I can get back to close to my old self.  I really don't want to take meds.  I guess because we have alcholoism in my family and I am afraid of takin stuff and getting dependent on it.  I have come to the realization that I will never fully be happy and without anxiety but. I can be ok.  I guess what i am saying . I know my dads home life was hell and he tried his best but the alcholism took over him and caused a home life of abuse and anxiety.  I cam out of it --messed up a little.  I am giving my kids a better home life then I had which I am proud of .  I have rised abouve my up bringing  somewhat.  My kids hopefullly then will be even happier in life as adult then I am and there kids better and better.  I know I am far from a perfect parent but I know  my kids feel loved and special and hoefully that will help them in there adult life.

Hi Howto,

I am so happy for you. Depression isn't easy to live with. I feel that you are on the road to recovery and on the right road. Things should just keep getting better for you. I am not saying that you wont have bad days. We all do, but the good should outweigh the bad. Keep up the good work. Keep posting.

Luv and hugs, Karen...
