... the problem
We are here to help. Some of us, me, have suffered from Major Depression for over 50 years, have been on many different medications, have battled back from hell, made it out of the pit and are mostly functional. Others are on the way out. Some are still there and those of us who are mostly OK, try to help. No matter where you are, this is a group that is here to help.
There are no experts here, but there is a vast amount of knowledge through having 'been there.' Some of us are actual scientists and are willing to do hard research when it is necessary, others are former nurses or other health practitioners, but I am not aware of any doctors here.
You cannot ask too many questions. We all started out as eggs.
Kelly - I have been on here for a month and a half. There are very smart, kind, caring, supportive people that have been here much longer. I have experienced nothing but positive, encouraging feedback, and lots of well wishes. Give it a chance. It is anonymous so there is nothing to be afraid of. We are all here to help, in any way we can... Be well as can be...
Nice to meet you and have you in our group! I tend to think that there actually are experts here, because in my humble opinion people who have lived through depression (or any other illness or disease for that matter) are oftentimes more knowledgeable (and definitely more sympathetic) than doctors are.
Anyway, there are many wonderful, kind and helpful people here on DC. Feel free to ask any question, as there are lots of people in out group who are more than willing to give you the best advice they are able to give.
Welcome! I'm a newbie here as well. :^) everyone is awesome, they have welcomed me with open arms and I must say have been very helpful in getting my butt out of bed and back into my family's arms, (them and some new meds) lol you won't meet a better bunch of anonymous friends!
