The reason MOST of us fight, is that we cannot see a good alternative. Some of us have reasons to go on, like knowing how our family would feel, if we tried the penultimate solution.

A starting point for climbing out of depression. Take the first step and take a read. Just take it one small step at a time.

I actually have Bi-polar disorder. Depression is half the battle for me, though I get more depressed than manic. I'm glad to be here.
