Hi there! My name is Cassie, I'm a 25 year old woman from Canada, and momma to my little monkey man, Jackson, who just started kindergarten and will be 5 in October. I used to be quite active on the September 2006 DDC/PR but it's been dead for a long time. This is a new account because I forgot my old one, haha.

In November/10 I was diagnosed with major depression. I've probably been depressed for years because to me, how I felt was normal. I didn't realize it wasn't. I am just re-starting my medication (was off for awhile due to not having health benefits) and just trying to get through day to day. When I stopped the medication I was on 30mg of Celexa a day, and it was helping. I'm now on the generic because it's cheaper (citalopram) and my doctor is planning to work me back up to the 30mg dosage. I'm currently taking 20mg a day.

I thought I'd come here because in my life I don't really have anyone I can talk to or that really understands it. I get 'so you're sad, get over it.' Nobody seems to understand that it isn't that easy. I was to the point where I wasn't eating, talking to anyone, not leaving the house except to work. Lately I felt myself getting back to that point. Just no joy in anything and not even wanting to exist. I'd never have the courage to actually try to kill myself, but I don't want to be alive most days. I just started the meds again a few days ago so I know they will help, I felt better when I was on them before. But it would still be nice to be in a community of people who understand.

I look forward to getting to know you all.

Hi! Welcome! Glad you stopped by!

I know we're hoping to build the board more to be a place where we can support each other.

Hope you stick around!
