    And I have absolutely no clue why! I've just been going about my life like normal, and for some reason, whereas before I wanted to kill myself every waking second, I want to live! I've been getting back to normal on a lot of things, I've started respecting myself more, and, well, I'm just so happy!

    There's a status update on my depression and all. [​IMG]

    Glad you're feeling better [​IMG] [​IMG]
    There's been that little something in the air over here too. Despite terrible global news and me having a heap of overdue work to catch up on, happiness abounds! [​IMG]

    And there you have it-you have discovered a truth of life here. Nothing ever stays the same. Just wait around a few days and things will change. Every tunnel has an end, even if it isn't apparent at one precise moment in time, and you'll come out on the other side if you keep walking. Wish all young folks would realize this. You just did and I'm very glad.

    EC, a happy you makes for a happy world around you. Life has it's ups, downs, and changes. Just understand that the bad stuff can/will change and you will be a stronger person for having outlasted the bad. "This too shall change" has helped me through some pretty rough times. Sourland is really glad that you are in a good space. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Glad you're feeling well today!

    I often get to feeling sorry for myself (which I do realize is a completely different thing than depression), but all I need do is look around and see folks that have situations so much worse than mine - THAT makes it easier for me to be thankful & appreciative of what I do have! [​IMG]
