So I’m new to this...recently I was diagnosed with anxiety & depression, so I decided to tell a few of my friends what I’ve been going through. It is hard because I have a big family so I feel like most my problems are ignored. My closest friends live far away so I really don’t have anyone in my life I can talk to, and I thought this would be the best way to learn how to deal with my problems & share my feelings.

I just found this site yesterday, & it’s already helped me more than anything else I’ve tried.

Please know that I will do my level best to be here if you need to talk, ok?

I will, believe me!

I’m almost 60, & had to learn medicine in the same way that someone who owns a crappy car has to learn auto mechanics just to be able to drive the stupid thing!

Take care of yourself, honey. I’m going to (try to) go to sleep now.

Hidden, I will always do my best to be here if you need me. Love you.

One thing I've learned with friends and family is unless they have depression or anxiety problems most people haven't a clue. Everything is black or white with them. If you find someone that doesn't suffer from depression and they understand what you are going though you are one lucky person. This site is the perfect place to vent. Here you have got a lot of people that understands and are willing to listen. You don't have to worry about hurting our feelings. Don't be angry with people around you it's not their fault that they don't get it.
