  1. I just realized that the 30th anniversary of my first and only suicide attempt is next month. Weird how time flies, especially when an existential crisis of that magnitude threatens to remove any remaining time you have. In retrospect I am glad I was unsuccessful. My life over the last 30 years is a combination of extreme ups, downs, and a medicated steady state, but has at least been interesting. Depression has been my constant companion for almost 40 years now and I wear it like a second skin. Overall, with the help of a huge team of 'think-outside-the-box' medical pros, I have been in remission for 16 months. No magic. No snake oil. Just an acknowledgement that although my brain might be the culprit, the mind-body connection is often reciprocal. Will my remission last? I hope so. Life takes on an entirely different color when you are not melancholic. My reason for writing is simple. I wanted to give a shout out to @Epictetus. The Google machine somehow brought me to your response to @Victoria1011 (https://www.depressionforums.org/forums/topic/181713-new-to-forum-need-advice-please/?do=findComment&comment=1609154). Your comment on guilt was exactly what I needed to read. As you can imagine, as one ages the accumulation of sins perceived or real, becomes overwhelming sometimes. So, thanks for this, @Epictetus. Thanks to the Internet, the truth of your words will help many more folks than the OP, and I am one of them. Cheers!
