This thread has done wonders for me. Looking at the posts everyday has shown me how introspective depressed people are. It's "all about me" ! Better to take a step back and say it's NOT all about me but how can I get myself out this selfcentred rut. I know its a chicken and egg problem and we feel if we werent depressed, we could do much more but the power is in our hands. No one cares about you as much as you do, nor why should they. Ditch the mind altering chemicals. Find an outlet. Volunteer to look after animals or help others less fortunate. And next time youre feeling sorry for yourself, read these posts and vow to take charge of your own life. We only have ONE life.. Dont look in, look out, and make a difference!
