    I've had depression for almost a month

    but I'm slowly coming out of it. I'm forcing to go out when I would rather stay home. I'm trying to socialize more even though I like being by myself. And you know what,I feel better...I'm not really 'happy' yet but I'm not crying myself to sleep anymore.
