Welcome back JD. Although, I always hesitate to welcome people back to the forums because it means something in their life isn't going as well as it should.
I'm glad to hear you're doing better, even if you don't feel like you are. That's one of the weird things about life, things change, toss & turn and its hard to really know what to make of it. The fact that you said you were going to keep going is a really big sign in my opinion. It means you have a certain degree of hope for the future. Which is very important with depression.
A lot of the people on this site from a few years ago don't seem to be here anymore. For various reasons. Like most things in life time has a way of drifting people apart. People seem to post here less and less. Its actually kinda sad. I feel like this site is slowly dying.
I'm not entirely sure what happened to the chat room but I think it got taken down because it requires money to maintain and the site is running low on funds. I could be wrong on that so someone feel free to correct me. But even back in its heyday the chatroom would only be used by about 20 people which for a website with thousands of members isn't that much.
