hi ralph - way to go!!!!!! :)
i hope the clouds stay lifted for you for a long time!!
i am waiting for the day when i pop my head thru the clouds and feel the warmth of the sun on my face again - i don't think it will be too long now, at least i hope not!!
in your post, are you saying that you were depressed from the age of 27 until just now? cos that is a LONG time!!!!! I guess it is something that comes and goes with all of us at different times in our lives. maybe some people get it worse than others; outside factors often determine much of what we feel. in my experience, some people seem to thrive on being depressed and use it as an excuse to behave badly, never taking responsibility for themselves or their actions ( im speaking about my ex here, not anyone here!!) - well, i dont think im one of those people - i too am waiting for the sun to shine in my life again.
im so glad you're feeling better Ralph - im sure you have given many people here hope and a faith that things can and DO get better!! stay happy :)
see you on the sunny side!!
