    I have been battling "depression"

    **** **** ****. It's bothering me again.

    It's intertwined with my relationship problems. I am just afraid of losing a long connection because I don't really have any others that are so strong and that I worked so hard for. I can tell it's happening because I just wanna sleep and I don't wanna eat. My appetite is fading...
