i have depression but i am currently on meds so i feel pretty much symptom free. however i am concerned for a friend. she has been seeing a counsler, does not take any type of meds, she does alot of drinking and a few other choice drugs. my real concern is that she is so down and unhappy with herself that i can see her throwing her marriage and life away. i have so been where she is right now. i hate too see her suffer so. she is resistant to taking any meds for some reason. she does not want to be doing the things she is doing but its her depression thats causing her to do the things she is doing & its hurting her and her family. i have talked to her, i have written too her. i tried to put my sorrows into words for her to understand but i am just not getting thru to her. does anyone have any suggestions or has been where i am now with a friend? its so sad too see whats happening to her. (were only internet friends but we speak and write several times a day, we just dont live close by each other)i welcome any advice. thanks guys~~~hugs~~~headspin
