Hello everyone, Zorna here.
about 5-10 years ago, my mom passed away, I went into the darkest place I did not even know was inside.  It took me five years to come out of the darkness.  If anyone ask me my biggest fear it would be that I would become depressed again.
  I worry because I see the same symptoms that I had, in my brother.  So while I am trying to help him I am also trying not to be suck in.  This forum helps, believe it or not.  After many counseling sessions individual and groups I still have low points, I just let them come I cry, yell,scream, sleep sometimes they last for one day, sometimes more, but I am learning to deal with me. During those times I try to be by myself, because I don't really like me very much and I am not a likable person.(I become so negative)

Of course you worry about your brother. You love him, so it is natural, but please remember that all you can do is be there for him and urge him to seek help if he should need it. It sounds like you've really been thru a lot and although we all know how hard it is to deal with depression, not everyone handles it exactly the same or has it to the same degree. Your brother may never get as "low" as you did. In the meantime, try not to dwell on it (I know that's hard to do), as all you'll do is make yourself anxy and sad over something you can't control.
Take care and keep on coming here! Nice folks these!

And you find them shining equally bright,

And not have known what you saw...
But you would notice a gem
In a five & dime store."
