  • Dear OP,

    I am not suffering from depression (I have in my past), but I think what you are posting is so great!! Keep it up! :) I think you have gotten the reality of steps out of depression....every single tiny step you take, leaves you SOMEWHERE you weren't before.

    I hope you find yourself in a place that is completely different, exciting, happy, and peace-filled very very soon! For me it was 2 things: 1. What you are doing now: taking baby steps. I committed to very small endeavors that led to very big changes, and 2. A voice in my head that said, "You don't have to be sad anymore."

  • I like to play on the computer- Mostly CafeMom and Facebook (those dang games are addictive!) I used to like photography. I have a nice camera just sitting on the shelf. I also used to like digital scrapbooking, particularly designing my own backgrounds, elements, and alphas. I also liked digitally restoring old photos and retouching photos and making vector art, or just playing around in Photoshop.

  • "what has stopped you from doing those things you like?"


    Sometimes I just don't care about anything. Sometimes I feel like my photos or my scrapbooking or whatever is crappy so I give up. Sometimes I'm just tired and want to sleep a lot or just stare at the tv.
