We are all in this together and if your other family does not understand, this one does. We support each other and genuinely care when one of us is suffering. I would say that we are a pretty awesome group!!!

Hi. This is a very supportive and caring team. If you don't suffer from depression, I don't think you can fully understand what a person who does is going through or is feeling. I use to get remarks like, Get over it, I still do. Or It's all in your head.
People feel that you make yourself depressed by not doing anything they don't realize that you don't do anything, because you can't. I think that is why a group like this is so important.
I love SparkPeople
