It sucks. I have been dealing with depression my whole life. The worst bought of depression happened when I was 15 years old. It was awful, it put my family threw a lot and I will always remember it. I have never been so severely depressed since then and I have my family and husband to thank for that. But I have been depressed lately and sometimes I don't really realize I'm falling til I hit bottom. Sometimes I don't even realize I've been depressed until it's over. I tell myself I can't be depressed look at this life I have, yes I have problems like everyone else, but they are normal problems that everyone has, I mean who thinks they make enough money or have enough time to do what they want to do, but I also have three wonderful daughters and an amazing husband and the best real live and scrapping friends. Who could get depressed with all these blessings? ME, and it shows in all aspects of my life, work, scrapping and some of the postings on my blog. A nice talk with Dan a while back made me realize I was depressed. I am feeling 100% better now. I am posting this because so many people suffer from depression and don't talk about it, and if I've acted funny or strange or off, I'm sorry.

I'm back now.

Angie, you don't need to apologize. So many of us have dealt with depression on at least some level, and can understand at least a little bit of the un-understandable struggle. I'm sorry you've been having such a rough time, but SO glad you're feeling better!! You are a sweet, inspiring lady, and that's what shows through. Big hugs for you!!

You're not alone.

I've dealt with depression and it makes life hard at times!

The ups and downs of life make depression come and go, but life does go on.

Glad to have you back!

I can totally relate..if it werent for Prozac I dont know where or what Id be doing from day to day. Depression certainly does affect us in so many ways, sometimes it hurts me even physically.. weird but true.
Im glad that you can share and talk about it and know that Im always here for you if needed. Hugs!-Glad you are feeling better!
