This group idea is sparked through our need to feel more comfortable and understood in life. Most people do not understand how it feels to be depressed and cannot relate. In return, it is challenging for ourselves to explain/describe to friends and family. This disconnection instigates fears of not being normal and further impedes our social anxieties. I am starting the group because we are not abnormal, we see things a little differently, we exist in large numbers and we can help each other. I think it is important to surround ourselves with one another, with people who understand, with people who we can feel comfortable around, people we can share stories with, and bridge friendships together that can carry us through our low points. Please by all means, join the group- don't feel shy. We are all in this together.
