Hi. Been following your Facebook page for a while enjoying the posts and try to take part in Fab 5 on a Friday so thought I would come over and join the website. I'm new to blogs/forums etc so excuse me if I don't know the jargon.
I've been battling depression for over 4 years now.i have a lovely husband and 3 great kids, 20 , 17, 16. Thankfully I know you guys are not going to ask THAT question....so what have you got to be depressed about. Most days I do ok but just home from hospital yesterday after my 3rd suicide attempt. Feeling very fragile and lonely even with my family. We told the kids I was in this time cos my change in meds had sent my bloods haywire. My youngest does not cope at all well with my illness. Anyway, that's me. Still here. Trying to work out how I feel about that. Fighting again.

Hi and welcome DWD (hi). Iíve added a trigger warning to your thread - itís not a problem, itís just so members who might find it triggering have the option to avoid the thread.

Iím so glad youíve made your way over from the fb Page and donít worry about forum jargon/etiquette - I was completely clueless when I joined a few years ago and am now one of the mod team (and donít break the forum that often anymore ;))

It sounds like youíre in a similar position to me - I have a wonderful supportive husband and 2 kids (aged 20 and 17). I know how hard it is to answer THAT question when I know Iíve got a life most would give their right arm for. Depression just doesnít work like that though ..... Iím so glad you came home from hospital and have found us here. No matter how it seems sometimes, you are loved and your wonderful family need you

You are more than welcomed, you are accepted, and cared about just as you are. IF you can take us all as we are.... ;) I don't judge. I'm not perfect, my life hasn't been perfect, so I don't proclaim to be able to sit in judgement on anyone..
