Thankful for wonderful Spark Friends

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Last night was a rough night for me. I was depressed, I think it was due to a poor telephone conversation with my Dear Aunt. Then it kept sliding from there, it just seemed everything kept going wrong and/or depressed me more. This is the dark side of being bi-polar. I am glad I kept sparking. Goodies, email and likes for activities came to me from spark friends. It is amazing how supportive Sparks is. I have found when you give some, you get so much more back. I guess the best part for me is just when I feel I am going to just loose it, someone from here just has the comment that saves me. Before when I would get depressed I usually just try to shut out the world. I have learned that coming here and sparking helps remove my depression.

    You have a great outlook on life, Steven. Bouts of depression won't get you down. You definitely have "family" here!

    I'm glad you have a venue to reach out and many friends to offer encouragement. emoticon emoticon

Remember ... Your presence and kind comments have also touched others.

For me, besides Sparks, I also have many feathered and fur pals that need my attention daily so I can't curl up and feel sorry for myself. My teens won't allow it either, LOL

Gentle hugs m'dear friend. When feeling down, you always have Sparks and a place to stay in "The Mansion" emoticon

    I've been a member of SparkPeople for several years but have just started getting involved in the community. I feel exactly the same way as you about SparkFriends! This place is really helping me change. I feel so much more positive and, well, happier. I hope tomorrow is a good day for you!
