Most of my family (living in different areas) have given up and friends too, as soon as I mentioned depression. This is awful. People usually run the other way and never look back as it is a Mental Health problem. Nov. 13 is Mental Health Awareness day (Tasmania, Australia). Now, what good is that going to do to make me feel better by electing one day per year. Everyone will say they agree with it all and then one year later, still nothing changes.
I was very close to contacting this Group last night about 10PM (Aust. time), but thought that if I mention depression, anger, frustration, fear, etc, etc, that no one would know what to do. I understand its a tough one. But I cant take another night. Rang my doc and he is booked out for 2 weeks. ......... Janet
