im new and i just wanted to say hello to all the members of the healing well.  Im just looking to make some friends and get through this sadness.  im always here to listen and be a shoulder to cry on for anyone who needs to talk. 
Has anyone else realized that telling a complete stranger their problems and about their depression is a lot easier then telling someone who you know in person?  I find that I an more open to someone who I have never met then talking to lets say my sister.  I hope that we can be there for one another helping each other along the way. 
My problem is that my saddness comes and goes.  One day im happy the next i am so sad that all i want to do is stay in a room alone with my thoughts.  Saddness for me comes in a gust of wind, hitting me really hard and me shocked not knowing what to do.  I guess what I am really depressed about is the feeling and thought of how my life will end up.  Will i end up alone? will anyone ever love me? What is the meaning of life? Why are we put here? and Whats the point of living? As you can probably see i have many questions running through my mind and none of them have answers and this drive me crazy.  To the point where i am crying and i am so depressed to the point where i dont want to be on this earth anymore.  I know that those of you who are depressed know where i am coming from and i find comfort in knowing that i am not the only one out there.

feelings, welcome! you are definately not alone! i know all too well how you feel as many others here do. i have always worn my heart on my sleeve, i am open and honest about my feelings and all it gets me feeling like a freak (unless it's anxiety, then i can't talk). but i agree that it is easier to talk to strangers. i've been here about two weeks and i've been able to be myself without people judging me and telling me that my state of mind is a choice. it's not a choice. i am not happy when i'm sad. thanks to the people here, i don't feel so alone anymore.
glad YOU are here!

I am an open book for the most part...I tend to tell people that I barely know waaaay to muc if I let myself get to talking, so it's better that I do it here on a forum than to some poor chap that had the misfortune to ask me how I'm doing!! LOL!
Thanks and welcome to you!!!

Hi feelings...glad u found your way to HW :)
I understand your 'ups and downs' very well and am wondering if you have sought some medical advice yet? It just may be that you need some counselling/therapy to learn new skills to cope with the rough patch you are going thru or sometimes meds are the answer too.
Tell us more about yourself if you want..we are always interested and willing to listen and help if we can.
