I recently went on medication, this is the first medication I've ever taken even though I've had depression and anxiety for a very long time. I thought it would be a cure all and at first I was disappointed with myself for not being able to 'kick the habit' of being depressed and having anxiety attacks all the time. I'm still learning about myself everyday but therapy and just keeping active is helping. However, my support system is very small and I feel as if I don't really have people who understand my struggles so I end up keeping everything to myself. I'm hoping this platform will be a sort of sharing and learning experience for me as I continue my journey in life.

I recently got a bunny this year. Pets have been a big part of my life ever since I was a child and I really wanted a pet but I'm so busy that I really couldn't get a dog or a cat. So I got a bunny!

Welcome TanyaLashea.... I loveeee your bunny....adorable..... and I very glad you found this place....they are very nice, kind, and caring people here who do understand what it's like trying to live with this disease. And it's unfortunate there isn't a medication yet that is a 'cure'....meds can help after a couple of weeks but it's pretty subtle....your just a bit lighter in mood and don't seem to stay down as long when they do work...but it won't stop the emotional roller coaster completely. That's where it is great to be able to have a place to share about it....

Thanks faux, yeah I am learning to appreciate the little wins.

Hiya, welcome I hope the meds can take the edge off every bit helps, meantime this is a good place to take that edge off. Nice bunny!

Yeah, it suits him. He's a little terror but its impossible not to love him.

I love that name..... what a cutie pie.....the only bunnies we have here eat our cabbage...but we just work around it.....we get some and they get some.....

Welcome! I can totally relate to not having people who understand your struggle, that's why I like being a part of this community. I've taken meds before and found that you sometimes have to try different combinations or different medications to find what works for you (with your doctor's guidance and supervision, of course), hopefully you see an improvement though. Your bunny is so cute!

Thank you

Before learning about this page existence, I would text my mum whenever having any sort of fall. My mum would generally either say something like get yourself together or just didn’t respond at all. It would make me even worse! Since I’m here, I feel so much better. They listen to you and they stay together with you showing you great empathy and support. Often the advices are just what you are looking for. They take care of you. It’s a blessed place. I’m happy you’re gonna be a part of it!

Thank you Orange!
