Where oh where are the Teddy Bears gone

Turning the corner
By this time most of my Spark Friends know that I have lived with depression since childhood and that I recently narrowly averted a complete crisis by reaching out for help. It took two calls to the mental health crisis line, one 100km ... Read more
