Hi my name is jerry and i'm new to this site. I'm not really sure what to expect but here it goes. I've been dealing with depression for the last 8 years and i'm at a point where i don't want to hide it anymore. I live a pretty isolated life. I pretty much go to work and go home and i just cant seem to enjoy things the way i used to. I recently decided to seek professional help and will be starting therapy soon. I'm trying this because i want to be able to open up to people again and be able to make real connections again. Sharing is really hard for me. There are probably only 2 people that even know i struggle with depression. A lot of times though i feel like theres nobody that really knows me. If anyone's been through this or is going through this i'd like to hear from you.
