can I join? I need to talk...
Advertisements [?]
I have been suffering from severe depression for months...well,years
part of it is the chronic illness thing.
Part of it is the economic thing.
Part of it is the coming-out thing.
It goes on and on.
How do you cope when your"things" seem so minor compared to others?
I feel wrong even mentioning it...except it's all I can do to get out of bed any more.
I'm lucky-I have good insurance and will see a psychiatrist eventually...will it even help?

sorry to feels good to
