I am thinking to start posting about the dramatic events I had to go through since childhood, in addition to my journey with depression, so others can read, and I can get help.
You can start right here by adding a comment to your question above. However, if you add a new question, it would be better as you can choose "open answers" so people can answer more than once. Also, check out my profile. I put a quick recap of me in there. Many do and it keeps background down the road as people add on asking their questions when you answer.
If you are looking for a blog, this would not be the place as we are here to help those with medical questions. We all vent from time to time. Current trials you are facing will be well answered.
Are you seeing a therapist? There is much to learn with a good one. I have been in your shoes and come out the other side. My family was damaged. I came out the other side by understanding that. I forgave myself for the pain and realized as an adult I can choose and leave the pain behind. The past can haunt you or make you strong. A therapist will aid you with that part of the journey. We are here to listen.you are no longer alone. Karen
This is a fine place. We discuss depression and meds a lot. Some of us have suffered from depression for years (lifelong), while others are newbies to the world.
There are no doctors here, that I know of, but some of us have a lot of experience and will often tell you to see your doctor when you should.
We will also be kind and comforting when it seems like the light is a train and not hope.
You may find some tough-love sometimes if you want to do something dumb, but mostly you will find loving people who don't want ANYONE to suffer the way that they have. Depression can destroy you and those around you. Talk about it here if it helps.
Also, get a shrink, psychologist, they help a lot.
