Hi. I've been here a few days and didn't think of posting a "hello everyone" post. So, here I am now doing it seeing that a few others have done just that. I have needed to find a good depression board/chat for a while. I have had clinical/major depression for over 8 years. And, before that, I had depression on and off for approximately 15 years. In those 15 years it would come and go every 2 years, then every 1 1/2 years, etc., always getting closer together until I could no longer function. It was hard when that happened because I was a highly functioning depressed person before (I didn't know what was wrong with me). I was very succesfull and had a lot of wonderful friends. Now it is like I am hiding out from the world. Anyway, sorry for the long story, maybe I wasn't supposed to put this here. I hope I have not angered anyone. I just came here in the hopes of helping other people who struggle with this disease. Because it is a disease and one that so many people do NOT understand. All of you have my support and please let me know if I can help you or if you just need someone to listen to you. Also, I have seen people mention "Chat", but how do you get to it? It's probably staring me right in the face, but I can't seem to find it. Thanks so much, Lindsay.

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
