Hi there, my name is Tammy.I have suffered with depression for the last six years.I also suffer from anxiety and panic attacks and am a recovering alcoholic.
In these past six years I went back to drinking for two of them which just added to the depression.I thank my dr for helping me through all of my rough times and getting me to where I am now.
I am proud to say I am sober again, recently off my AD meds, and on an as needed basis for my anxiety meds.None of this would have been possible without the support of MDJ.
I am honored to be a new group leader and hope to help others realize there is hope on the other side.I also hope to learn from all of my old friends and new friends to come.
Thank you for the opportunity to help others. In doing so,I am helping myself.
Hi, my name is cinny58. I am so glad to be a co-leader of this group. I have suffered from depression for a long time and feel that I can relate well to others. I would like to give back to this group what they have given me and that is wonderful support. Thank you, cinny58
Hi my name is Dee. I have suffered with depression off and on most of my life. In the last ten years I have developed a lot of health issues. So depression has been even harder to fight.
I want to be able to help other people in their journey in life. So if I can help anyone else with my life experiences I would be very happy to do that.
Hello, my name is Judy. I am honored to be a group leader and hope I can be of help in some small way when you need it. I have been suffering from depression (man I so dislike that phrase) since my late teens early twenties. I also experienced severe postpartum depression with each of my three children. I started consistent therapy in 1996. So I feel I have learned some lessons on how to spot a slide and work my way out. But it's always right there, around the corner, just waiting to sneak up on me again and again. With no support from family or friends this has become a great place to connect with others and share and learn. I tend to use humor a "tiny' bit so I hope to get a smile or a giggle when I do, but if it upsets or offends anyone, please let me know. I look forward to interacting with you all in this new capacity, but don't worry, I won't get a swelled head from the change in status. I already think I'm all that and a bag of chips! (that would be the humor I mentioned)
Hello everyone my name is Mitzigirl and I am sure alot of you on here know me by now..I am 48 yrs old and suffer from many illnesses including I am now terminal but at the same time I am not dead yet...I also suffer from depression along with all these other problems and sometimes it is really hard to manage but I find my strength from God and thankfully I have found doctors who also know how to treat me and help me stay in a much more positive attitude...Somedays it may be hard but I always try to remember tomorrow will be a brand new day and I can start all over again and it just might be better or even GREAT!!! I would love to get to know everyone and feel free to pm me if you have any questions or just want to talk and not on the forum...I look forward to meeting everyone and getting to know each and everyone better..

Hello and welcome to the depression support group. My username, Mixer man, comes from my long career driving concrete trucks. I am honored to be chosen as a Group Leader for this group. I see it as a role of facilitator rather than leader. My goal is to make sure the conversation moves forward while helping to ensure that this is a safe place for everyone to help each other with our problems. If you have any questions, problems, concerns or just need to talk please PM me. I am a very good listener.
My name is Patty. I have been a Group Leader on and off with this group we call Depression for 5 years now. But know I feel this group gives you more support than just our depression. I give it my all to support you in life situations and desperate times with caring support. I believe all members should reach out their hand to support one another, even when they are going through the same problems in life dealing with being depressed. Thats what support is, and I intend to stay a long time. Kind , caring support is all we need to get us through the day. And this is the best place you can receive it..through Mdj.
