  1. Hello everyone, it's been quite some time since I posted on your and I just wanted to give my status that I am still alive, struggling, but getting better. I know that I would be on here like every day for a long period of my severe depression episodes and it has been so good for me to get all the support that I have gotten on here from everyone. I had been, since 2011, just isolating myself here with only my thoughts to keep me company and that is not very good company at all. A a few months ago I finally took that leap of faith and started volunteering at a place called "Hand of Hope" here in my town and going to church with the pastor that runs it and it has so far been a great experience for me. To be able to get outside of myself and try to help others while at the same time helping myself. And I know that in the process I have neglected to at least touch base with you guys here, seeing as this is the best place I know of with a community of people that truly love and are concerned about me and others. I still fall into my "comfort zone"of sheer and frightening dark depression and I withdraw from everything and just stay home. But those are the times that I need to go and try to help others but we all know that in our depression we can be very selfish, not saying that's a bad thing that we do, it's just the way it is. We keep to ourselves and don't allow anyone else in our world, even though we must at times let other people that want to help us, help us. I will try to be in this community more often but I promise nothing because I am not very good of a promise keeper. So that's my status for today, Veterans Day 2017. Be good to yourselves my friends... Quentin
