Reaching Out

I just received the most heart-breaking of comments to one of my previous posts, it was the post I made about finding friendship on the internet.  The anonymous poster felt that he/she had no friends at all, i feel I know this person from somewhere but can't put my finger on it, perhaps it's you, perhaps you're reading this.  It really affected me as it was obviously from someone who is feeling exceptionally low right now.  I of course have been there and fully know what it's like it that dark abyss we call depression.


I really need to rach out to that person and give them a large cyber hug and tell them things will get better.

Life moves so fast and for those of us who are challenged by depression you can feel almost slowed down to a complete halt.

If you are sitting looking at your screen today feeling in dispair or depressed take heart in the fact that you never quite know what is around the corner.  I remember a time when I never could have envisaged that I would achieve the things I know I have achieved today.  Sometimes in the depths of depression even when you achieve great things you don't see it.

To my anonymous poster all I can say is that I hope things get better and if you need a cyber friend then I'm here ready and waiting to try and shine a small light to get you out of that abyss, hoepfully without bumping your head too much!
