Frame, it doesn't matter what you accomplished this day or that day. What will happen will happen eventually as long as you don't give up. What matters is that today you made a move. You didn't sit still. You didn't give up. You didn't do any of that. But you did make a move. That's all that counts....

Fallen, we all have something to learn from eachother. If we listen. Thru helping others we are essentially helping ourselves. Not only helping us to feel better, but to be a better person. You don't know your true strength until you have reached bottom. Once there, you dig just a tiny little bit mo...

My depression often maifests itself in the form of anger. I carry a picture in my pocket at all times of my family. When I get angry, before I speak, I take it out and look at it and ask myself "do I really want to hurt these peope"? It's always no. Even just the act of doing this gives me...

Change of sleep pattern (including excesive sleep) is one of the many symptoms of depression. So is isolation. Please have him talk to a counselor. It can help a lot.

Citm, I also have ptsd and depression with suicidal tendencies. So I do know what pain is like and how difficult it can be. Unfortunately when dealing with relationships, doing as much research as we can to learn is about all I know to say. Relationships take a lot of work to maintain. Even the good...

We each have our own pain. It doesn't matter whether it's been 1 year or 50. It doesn't matter how old you are. Pain is devastating.
