    I too have had depression for many years.  I have lost a great deal because of this illness, but I battle on.  I did take an overdose once and have been hospitalised, lost job, house, relationships, but I am still here.  I feel better nbow than I did when I first knew I had depression.  I just keep on fighting.  Hard I know, but what else is there?

    I think we could all write that book, I have said that many times.  Yes there are many things I too would like to change, but the past is past, and we cannot go back.  I often wonder how different my life would have been.  I have lived alone all the time I have had depression. 

    You are entitled to rant, I think it helps.  All of us here understand because we know exactly how you feel.  We all support each other so carry on ranting, that is fine.
