About Depression Forums
We are a group of individuals, both male and female, who help to moderate the Forums. Each of us has a personal reason for volunteering and giving of ourselves for a depression-based forum because each of us is either personally affected or recovering from a depressive illness or we have a loved one dealing with such an illness.
Our members who function as VOLUNTEER Moderators on the team help us by being our eyes and ears during the daily running of the Forums. Very little would be accomplished without such a great group of members. All of us together compromise the Forum Admin Team.
The Road To Recovery
Coming here and asking for help was your first step on the road to recovery. You visited us looking for life-saving alternatives. You DO have choices! Finding the right combination of medication and talk therapy is your second step. You don’t (need to suffer needlessly) any longer.
You can find some comfort in the fact that we may be able to describe you without ever having ever met you. We can do that because you may suffer from a well-defined illness. We can also do that because most or all of us on this forum have been there. You are not alone in this suffering and you are not experiencing anything unique. We know you believe that no one else has ever felt as low as you are right now but that is not true. The truth is that the symptoms that you are experiencing now are more common than you may know.
