Hang in there Rich!  You aren't alone as others have said.  I too have enjoyed your E-company over the last few years (if I remember right?)  I too share in the lost memories thing so I'm totally where you are at..  It's a hell of a thing to occasionally meet someone you knew and can't for the life of you remember who his/her name is or the interactions you had.  A head injury back 20 years ago messed with my noodle..  Now I'm experiencing epileptic issues and it's made a mess of my life..  I've lost tons of memories of when our kids were young and life in general..  The only outlet I have is to try and have fun and enjoy everyday interactions with whomever I get the opportunity to meet..  (sorry GTtalk folks!!)  :anyone:   

 

Winter is the worst season as folks just have too much time to sit and think..  

 

So lean on me if you wish..

 

**Just don't expect me to remember any of it though!! :wallbanging:

Does not remembering that you were depressed help?

No, you just feel bad and don't know why. That's the way I was from Jr. High until about 8 years ago. Then I found a psychologist and a councellor who knew what they were doing.

Rich, I've been using the mod team as my psychologists for quite some time now.  When my psychy gets bent out of shape, I bend all the mod's ears.  Don't hesitate to lean on us when you need it.  :thumbs:

Winter is tough on people. If I don't stay busy time really drags and the old mood starts going downhill. This is why I try to spend at least part of the summer lining up projects for the winter. The following fits me to a tee!

It's good that you can visit openly about the depression. That's a huge step forward.

  Winter is just something that reminds me to look forward to spring. By the time winter sets in I'm ready to kick back and relax for a few weeks, then after the 1st of the yr I start finding things to do out in the shop, either mechanical, welding or woodworking. I read a lot in the winter, it seems to keep me calm. LD, we're here if ya need someone to just listen!!

We like you too, LD, and there's two sets of shoulders here for you to lean on whenever they're needed. Depression is a real bummer-- but recognising that that is what it is, is more than half the battle.

 I always found that excersize that works up a good sweat would help with my depression.  "They" say that it produces natural good brain chemicals that help with feeling good and sleeping.  I used to bike regularly when I could still see better then I walked and ducked the cars and that got old quick.  I always feel the best working firewood and digging projects and the like... too bad I'm getting so old and lazy lately.:D
