Hey Critter--

You don't know me, and I really don't know you. I've followed your posts, but who we are online is not always who we are, though your courage in these messages tells me you are laying out a lot of the real you here. I'm going to PM you some stuff that I hops will matter. PLEASE let me know how you are doing, as well as keeping up the lines of communication here.

Thanks everybody. As an update, I have been very busy with several appointments a day to try and get everything lined up and get a plan going. I've started a six month program of counselling and the organization that is doing this for me actually has positions with my degree and if I can get one they currently have a program for their employees that gives loan forgiveness after two years. I also got something to help me sleep. I've also started drawing again to get some of the stuff that's in my head out of it. And now I am watching Ghostbusters.

Getting enough sleep can be a BIG help.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Just checking in.

How are you doing critter?

Most of your posts seem to be in the School shooting thread. Try and focus on the positive, eh?

So I finally got my anti-depressants today. They'll take a few weeks to start working. I also have some more of the stuff to help me sleep. Had a job interview last week but didn't get it. Filled out some more apps and a friend put in a word for me at one of the companies. I also had to get a new phone because mine died. And I've been drawing to focus some of my brain stuff. Also running and taking dog for more walks (on top of the Yoga I already do). Today they drew blood for testing to see if there's anything else they need to address (hormone and vitamin levels.)

And Critter Jr. has an ear infection.

Glad to hear you got the anti-depressants.

Have a friend monitor how you react to them. My brother is on those (and several others) and getting the dosage right is a process.

Running or even walking can be a great help. Good for you for getting out there and being proactive.

Ear infections are common for Kids. If you are staying on top of it you should not be overly concerned.

Best luck on the job search.

Luckily I have a good support network, both in town and online. I'm still getting used to people actually caring how I'm doing. I am grateful for it but not always good at knowing how to respond to it since it's such a new thing.

Critter,

I had no idea you were having problem. I hope you will be OK. If you ever need anybody to talk to, you are more than welcome to call me as well at (478) 213-3991. My name is William Davenport. Remember, you are not alone in dealing with depression. Many others have dealt with it before. Stay strong my friend. It's not easy, but remember, though the bad times might be here now, they will soon pass and the good times will come again. Always remember that my friend. Never quit, never give up, stay strong and stay in the fight. Many people here will bend over backwards to help you out and make sure you are OK. You are not alone.

I just found this, critter. You know how fond I've been of you for many years of café friendship. Please PM if you'd like to chat.

Hey Critter, I have dealt with major depression for many years and have survived three suicide attempts. Don't worry about the future or eeven tomorrow, concentrate on today. Make sure you laugh everyday and share your magic with other people.Hang in there, it gets better.

Someone told me that this comic described their feelings on depression:
