Hey! I'm new to the site and was hoping maybe meeting some people who were on the same page as me would be helpful. I wouldn't really say that I'm new to depression, but until now I was never willing to admit it. I almost feel guilty for being depressed because I know I have so much more than so many people. I don't know the root of it, but I guess if I did then I would be in this situation huh?! I like to be one of those people who brings everyone up when they're down. I think it's more for selfish reasons though, it gets my mind off of my own problems. It scares me that I feel so down and so helpless. I've gotten to a point where I don't even know if the 'pursuit of happiness' is worth it because it seems happiness is only temporary and that the pain always trumps it. I'm sure I'll meet many great people through this site. Everyone take care!
