Whether you’re moving from city to city, town to town, from one job to the next and from daydream to daydream, I imagine that many of us feel lost.
This is my first post (albeit I’ve been lurking for a couple of years now) and I thought I would try and connect with this thoughtful and supportive community.
My name is Grey (alias), I live on Vancouver Island, and I am a survivor of many, many years of chronic depression. I have had 4 episodes of major suicidal depression during those countless years, with 2 occurring in the last 3 years. I am also a survivor of severe emotional neglect and abuse throughout my childhood and adolescence.
I have experienced depression for so long that it has become my ‘normal’, my baseline. I can hardly remember the last time I felt content or at peace with myself and my surroundings. I imagine I’m not alone, at least in this regard.
I won’t go a long rant, after all I’m new here and wouldn’t
want to scare and/or bore you all to tears 😉
Bye for now
