Need to give and receive support

Lyn842 profile image

I just joined. I am looking for an active support online group for depression. So many I have checked out online are not very active and a big disappointment. I am not just a taker. I want to give to others if I can. By giving we also help ourselves. I am currently under a Drs care, on medication,and hoping to once again dig my way out of a current bad episode. I have Faith and hope that this too shall pass.

Hi Lyn842 and Welcome :)

I think you will be very pleased in the active chats between members. I feel it's one of the best support on line groups around. I feel as you do in that we learn a lot from each other by sharing our journey with mental health issues as well as supporting each other.

Believe in that "this too shall pass" and it will. What you believe is what you get. I've come a long way with my Anxiety and Agoraphobia. It's now my time to pay it forward and help others.

Wishing you well. xx

I did not know what Agoraphobia meant until I read this and looked it up. I'm glad I got to learn about something new.

I'm sorry. We take it for granted when we have lived with it. I spent 5 years unable to leave my house and decided I deserved the name "Agora1". xx

There's no need to be sorry! :)

I'm glad I learned about it, when I was telling my mom about joining this support group, I told her that I learned what it was and she told me that it's what my aunt has.

And I'm sorry that you spent that much time not being able to leave your house, that couldn't have been easy, I'm glad that you're here for support!

Take care and beautiful photo !

Hi again Lyn842. Although I wrote mostly about anxiety, I've also had bouts of depression, so I can relate. We are both newbies here and it sure looks like there is a wealth of support, compassion, caring and empathy here.

Hello and welcome.
