Hi and thank you for the update. I am sorry that you were undone by frizzy hair and a lack of shoes. I hope that your date went well anyway. Walking is such good exercise for putting things back into perspective. Meditation is a good way to do that too. I hope that your day and your weekend brings you closer to achieving that which you want to achieve. Sending you hugs and positive energy. Take care and God bless, Deb T.

Hi Katrina - I'm sorry that you had a mini-breakdown, but I suspect that what you experienced was more every-day life's stressors as opposed to depression. I can remember many moons ago similar thoughts/feelings - long, l-o-n-g before I suffered any depression. The sooner you speak to your Dr the better, tho'!
Hi all, i'm just checking in to say that i'm doing good. I had a mini breakdown today for no reason at all (my hair was frizzy, and I didn't have shoes for my date so I just started to cry).
I was better after about 5 mins. Since walking I have been able to clear my head, and really think about what I want to do with my life, and what my goals are. I still haven't spoke to my doctor about my depression nor have a I found a therapist. I will though soon :)
