I've been suffering from depression since this summer. Not the first bout, and not the worst, but it's been building for a while now, and this is the longest it's gone on.
Like many people who get like this, I do feel a bit of a fraud and that others must have it much worse, and so I don't generally like to talk about it much. Certainly not in public...
But here I am. I feel like I need to tell you, my friends on app.net, because I trust you and I'm starting to feel bad about how I might come across sometimes. I do my best but I know I can seem unfriendly and terse (probably most of the time) and I'm sorry. I value everyone on here that I've interacted with - all the threads, links, jokes and conversations - all the moments of human contact which have really helped me these months.
So anyway - that's me and where I am right now. I just wanted to say something because I feel like I've not been myself on here for a while now and I felt bad. Sometimes I'm really "up" and chatty, but sometimes I'm very down/irritable/negative and maybe I should stay away from app.net then. I'm sorry if you've been on the wrong end of it sometimes.
To be honest I'm not desperate to talk about this very much on Alpha - but now Omega is around then get in touch if you like. If you have any words of advice or anything that might help then I'd very much appreciate it.
Equally, if you are currently going through hard times, do get in touch with me. I'd be happy to offer a friendly ear and a shoulder to cry on.
