    I Struggle Through Devastating Hopelessness On A Daily Basis

    I'm inherently a cheerful person - so now that I have been coping with depression for several years it just looks like I'm only a little bit down. Because when I'm happy - rarely so, I'm bursting with life, but in my depression I still maintain some of my original demeanor. This...

    Nothing To Tell

    I've done all I could on this earth. I raised a successful daughter, I've given everything I possibly could to my husband. Neither need me any more and I don't know how to live outside personal connection.
