Hi, I am new here. I have suffered from depression for several years now due to lack of family, friends where I live but the depression seems to be getting worse. I've missed several planned activities which would have been fun, but I just can't seem to get myself out of bed early enough to attend. I'm hoping I can get inspiration and support from others by posting here.

Well, hello and welcome. We offer as much info and support we can. Many members of this venue choose to have a therapist to help sort of many of their issues involving anxiety.

Others have doctors who may RX medications for some of the venue members. Others choose to forego medication for as long as possible.

Again, welcome!


Welcome! I moved away from all family and have been going through the same thing as you. It helped me to say "This week I'm doing x" and not committing to anything else. It can also help to tell one of the people you want to meet them there - that accountability meant a lot to me. I told at least one friend - I sometimes oversleep because I've been feeling a bit down lately, so I'm tentatively making these plans. After the last year of doing stuff like this, I have more friends. Bless you!
