    Hey Guys,


    Too many to name. Corvin. Lady Lee. Brummie Shoot. So many of you.

    Recently I had a bout with Depression.

    Actually, I've had it SEVERELY for about 3 years now.

    And it comes and goes... But it's much like Diabetes... (appologies to anyone who has diabetes.)

    But I have a medical condition (depression) that comes and goes.

    I would attribute 90 perecent of it to the WT world.

    Before that, I would get blue. But I've learned to know the difference between the blues and depression.

    Anyway, I wanted everyone here to know that I'm doing a little better now.

    Love all of you.

    I've been there my friend.

    Glad your feeling better.


  • kls

    So glad you are feeling better . Depression is such a hideous monster that i deal with constantly and hope you can get past the demons that haunt you and be happy.

  • codeblue

    I am so glad you are feeling better.

    Since my fade, I have had severe bouts of depression as well......

    There are many kind, wonderful people on this board that really care....they too have helped me out in my time of need.

    I'm glad to hear it, Confucious.

    Take care of yourself.


  • Sassy

    I am glad you are feeling better too! Hope you can stay on the positive side of things!!

  • prophecor

    Good to know you're getting help here.

    Being outside the Org. is like having to put your deathly ill favorite pet to sleep, but once you do, you realize it was for the better.

    Wish U Well.

    Conf, I know where your coming from, hang in there. A good habit/practice is to keep the positive things in front of you especially when depression starts setting in. I've been to hell and back a few times. Remember, there's many who have and will go through what we have experienced. The best and glad to know your feeling good again. Guest77

    Heya {{{{ Con }}}} I'm glad you're feeling better. It does, eventually, pass, thank gawd.

    If you're not on meds, that can make a world of difference! I like roller coaster rides, but the depression ride sucks.

    If you are on meds, then maybe it's time for a discussion with your doc. I've had to change a couple times in the last 10 years. Recently, for winter, I've had to up my dose. Light therapy helps the winter blues, too.

    Take care, guy. And lots of hugs... they're necessary to human existence!
