Thank you Julie I feel good already knowing you and others care for me. I'm 71 years old so I have lots of traumas in my younger years and loses. I'm seeing a therapist trying to open up issues that I hide for a long time. It's very painful to look at my past. I also trying to tapering my depression med I don't want to take it. I just had my second covid shots and I have some reaction and recovering from it.

Hi. Depression sucks, but seeing a therapist is a great step, I had one for 5 years and changed my life for the better!! Why do you want to stop medication?

Thanks I don't like to take med for I think it keeps me from thinking and feelings my emotion I hope to be done with med and manage my emotion with herbal supplements and learn to change life style of thinking and feelings :)

Thanks SraB Your reaching out make connection and care to me is very much appreciated. I have low self esteem so I don't think I deserve anyone attention all my life ,I was taught to serve, I'm from another culture.

To have your care for me when you don't know me is wonderful, it felt good to receive care without expectation .

take care :)

Thanks Julie your encouragement bless me greatly. I can tell you since I started to talk with a therapist since Dec 2020 slowly I learn to trust and beginning to share some of the trauma that I experienced in my younger years. It's still hard for me to talk about it. I hope you understand I hope one day I will be able to talk freely about my experienced. For just know that I have you your care for me brings me much comfort. Thank you.

Diane :)

Thank you Maryemma I appreciated your care and compassion . I believe working with a therapist access my child hood trauma and my emotions frozen and I became non self. Now that I beginning to open up, lots of feelings come up and now willing to reach our and have you and others reach out to me help me see how starved I was for connection and love from others. Thanks again for your care :)
