I am brand new here,don't know really what to say, except that I am very, very sad. It is very hard for me to make friends in "real life"(offline) because 1)I have been severely depressed for 15 years, and no drugs/meds have really made much difference and 2)I have mild to moderate(sometimes severe)agoraphobia, times I cannot even leave my house.So I live a trapped life. My boyfriend, my daughter,some of my familty can give me partial relief, but nothing can ease the shame and confusion and lostness I live with.There are times I feel that everyone,eben my daughter,wold be better off without my strange sickness handicapping her too, through me. Times I want to just end it all.
But before that, long before that, want to reach out--as to the people on this board,who seem lovely. I would love to get to know some of you better,and hope to do so over time. Also, if anyone wants someome to talk to--about anything--I'm here.If I feel out of my league, then I will honestly tell you; but if not,I will try and help give the best advice/support I can. You ALL see, to do that,for each other,in this forum,and I love it.
Anyhow, hope to meet you and see more of you,too!
