    It's odd, I didn't think that reading other people's experiences or writing replies to them would be helpful in any way for my depression.

    That others feel as low as I do, that they've suffered similar experiences to me and battled the same battles as me has actually been helpful. Some of the pus has been released from the festering boil of depression in me . 

    Thanks to those who share their stories and for those that reply without judgement.

    Hi Carl, that's great to hear. Experiences are so valuable to hear, even if it's just to know you're not alone. I hope you'll keep sharing and posting.
