"It is nice to have a place to come to and just "vent" about my day without bombarding
my friends with "woe is me" emails or staying off the computer completely. My friend
found this place and I hope it does help to express myself without feeling vulnerable."
"Wow thank you all for your support! It’s been a huge struggle getting here and
it still feels like a challenge. I still keep getting these moments of utter sadness
... it especially hits at night! So I thank you all for commenting and hugs ...
they are very much needed!"
"I know exactly how you feel, and sometimes I wonder why do I even try? It’s because
we have hope! And hope is the spark that keeps the fire of life going! I am praying
things change for you quickly....and you do provide support! You are "here" and
we all know just having someone to listen is just an incredible amount of support!!
And we are lucky to have you..."
"I'm feeling sort of empty, emotionless and joyless this evening. I'm hoping this
diary will allow me to vent and share and interact with people who can understand
what I go thru day after day after day..."
"I am hoping for the best for you. I have found that this site does help, Sitting
in front of this screen and sometimes crying while I type helps. It has been a major
plus in my life to find people who accept me for who I am."
"Yah this place (TD) is pretty marvelous. I wish you lots of luck. It's tough especially
with Children. You want to be able to give them so much but when you’re sick taking
care of yourself sometimes makes that so hard. I think anyone dealing with a disease
can sympathize and understand especially the depression. It's hard to not get down
sometimes when you’re in pain and feel helpless. I hope you have a strong support
system to keep you strong."
"Welcome. Glad you found the site. Lots of unconditional support; sometimes we all
need a little me time. This site lets you have a pity party, and along the way make
friends and get some support and or advice."
"I can't begin to express my gratitude; it’s nice to have people who understand me.
None of my family has depression which makes it harder; some of them actually believe
it’s all in my mind."
"This site helps me move forward and keeps me going. I don't love myself so it's
hard to love others. Until I can do this I believe it will be hard to find happiness."
"What is vital is to feel encouraged, motivated and inspired to take whatever life throws at you."
"I hope you are doing better. As the ones before me have stated we love you and want
to help. This time last week I was where you are at or maybe worst. Please take
a look at all the love and support that was sent my way."
"You may feel like you are whining but it’s good to read that others are going through
the same things! It’s not good that we all feel so low obviously, but it brings
hope and comradeship to remember there are others going through this too, that I
have a place I can be myself, that some days are worse than others (which means
some are also better than others) When I was feeling better before i realized my
crashes were getting further apart and lasting for shorter periods.....it helped
me to realize this because a crash was not always back to the bottom!"
"Thanks to the TD friends, now every morning that I wake up, I try to think positively,
try to refresh my mind of what I used to like doing, try to think of people whom
i love, try to find something to do so I can avoid the negative sentiment that been
holding me back. Nice knowing all of you!"
"I am trying to hang in there - it just seems so hard sigh. I don't really know what
to do, but now I feel so lucky to have TD around to support me. I can't support
myself and often wonder why others try to support me when I can't even do it to
myself and make things better."
"Thank you so much, I am still discovering this site...and looking around...but it
sure is nice to have a place to go and just say it like it is and have others understand..thank
