Hi, Welcome to our little family here. I have been in the mental health system, for what seems forever. As a consumer not as a giver. Your post reminded me of something that has been drummed into my head over the years, because at one point I was considering suicide. I also am a mother and a grandmo...

Justin, I haven't been around for a while, and it doesn't look like you have been either.

How is it going?

Hi Frosty, Come here and share some of your thoughts with us. Maybe we can help boost your self-esteem some and you might feel more comfortable with "the outside world". One of the good things I find about being part of an on-line group, is that you can write anytime. It doesn't have to fi...

Hi laneebum, Want to add my welcome, as well. I found this site by googling depression, a few years ago. I can truly say that this is a safe, caring place where you can share your feelings. I had a really tough time sharing but being able to visit this site has helped me a lot. Both with sharing on-...

Glad that you found us ongoingstruggle. I suppose the name that you have chosen, pretty well says it for how things are going for you. It is true that you have found a place where no one can see you. For me, I also found it easier to share when it wasn't with someone I knew. A long time ago I was to...

I often say that I say goodbye to my friends like it is the last time that I am going to see them. With many of them it doesn't involve just a hug, it also is an exchange of "I love you" whispering in the ear. Since I had the ECT just over three years ago, and I got a second chance at life...

Haven't heard from you in a while, Monica. Should I be following a different thread to hear how it is all going.

How are things working out.

Let us know how the appointment goes.

Hi Crista, Looking forward to getting the chance to know you better. It seems so often that people have no trouble, spouting off whatever to anyone that they meet. They don't seem to realize how hard it is for some of us to verbalize our thoughts. For too many years, I kept too much stuff inside. I ...

Welcome Trinket to our forum family. I am one of those members that only post to the forums, I can't do the chat room thing. It is too fast moving for me. For as long as I can remember people have been telling me that I am my own worse enemy and that I need to be easier on myself. Over the years I w...

According to my brother she is more confused and they have put a sign on her walker, telling of who she is, and where she belongs. I ...

There was a reading at one of our local bookstores and I read an exerpt from a book that was on a book launch. The author was there and...
