Depression really doesn't care whether or not you are a "fortunate" person. It doesn't care if you have a nice home, cars, etc. It doesn't care that there are people worse off than you. I think it's really an equal opportunity disease. If you're feeling depressed, you should talk to a dr about it, and look into ways to try to get yourself to a better place. You've gone through a lot, and being worn down and depressed is understandable. You didn't do anything wrong, it's just something that happened along the way.
I'm glad you found HW and were able to share your story with us.
