Question for the depressed out there...doesn't it drive you crazy when the 'normal' people around you stay away from you because you are sad? It makes me feel like a freak/outcast or something. I find that because I had leukemia/cardiomyopathy/depression, etc...folks think that they will CATCH something from me...so they stay away most of the time. I guess, in a way, I can understand it. It's human nature, fear, etc. But it still hurts! Sometimes, when I catch a story on TV or in the newspaper, about people coming together for others in times of need...I feel jealous! I think like, "What about me? Where are all MY friends when I need them?" (but thank GOD I found this site) Maybe I can find some TRUE FRIENDS here. Anyone else know what this feels like??
