Support from Friends & Family Reviews

Always works wonders for me, but I do not receive support very often at all. I am perceived by most of my friends and family as the stable one who will listen to and fix their problems. They do not see beneath the mask to recognize that I go through struggles every day and am not as strong as I project.

My friends and family members understand, and often they can tell I'm having a bad day without me having to say anything.

When it's real bad I can now go to my family and let it all out. That really does help.
My best friend will let me talk for hours and cry and is always their for me. My family, especially my mother, is always there to talk if I need to

I have an extensive network of family and friends I can reach out to if I find myself beginning to sink down. I have never hidden my problem with depression from any of them.

The love & support of my Family and Friends helps me everyday.
