Can we please keep this discussion to the discussion board?  I'm getting annoyed from hearing "BING" on my IM about getting an email about some dead person.  I could honestly careless (in the most respective manner), but please?

Depression is a lot more common than most people realize.  Spending time with dogs helps alleviate my symptoms, but my depression has badly impeded my ability to work, which means I am unable to have a canine companion of my own.  Depression makes it hard for a lot of folk to work, which means they are unable to care for whomever or whatever they truly love, which actually worsens it.

You know I rarely ever reply to the email messages. I'm more of read and dismiss kinda gal. Also concerning furry fandom I've only been involved in it for little over a year so I'm still hanging on the fringes of the fandom, myself. However after reading all the past messages, I really am surprised at the amount of depression and suicide found in furry fandom. Of course I could be wrong and this whole situation could be exceptional, but talking about suicide itself is serious. Its not something u can dismiss so easily or basically talk causually about in crossing. Suicide is serious. Very serious. And in my opinion have so many people openly admit that they've concidered or atempted suicide is beyond alarming to me. I'm sorry if this sounds consumptous to some. Trust me its not. I'm just very surprised of the level of depressed and despondent furries out there. Like I said I'm still very new to the fandom, so this is surprising to me. I myself am not depressed nor have ever considered suicide. However then again I'm a horse person and I've always been competitvly involved with horses, so anytime I was remotely sad id escape to my barn and ride horses until I felt better. Horses make me happy, so I guess they save me from depression. That's my experience at least.

I've learned that the people that shun you away or tell you otherwise are the kindve people you don't need in you're life. They only hold you back. We are here to help each other and I'm not going to tell you to leave or change and im sure everyone else here can back that. You are unique in your own way so be proud of it. there are a few kind of people I won't be around and for a good reason, I'm not going to judge anybody as a general rule. I will get to know them first. Otherwise I'm open for friends. Be happy your a furry.

I have had quite a bad life so far and wish I could forget it, yet to this day people keep leaving or dying around me, I lost the last person I had to talk to a little over a month ago and I rarely speak these days so, I am a bit edgy on wether or not to talk to anyone at all at this point since everyone I turn to keeps shunning me away...

If anyone needs to chat or wants to talk about the passing of someone, I'd be glad to give a hand. It's pretty nice seeing the vast amount of furs in here willing to give a hand... or paw... or hugs... to people in a time of need.

I've Been fighting deperession and suicidal tendencies since my early childhood and I'm still fighting. I choose to keep going because I know things are getting better. They will for all of you. Don't give up. we are here for each other for better of for worse. I will lend a hand, an ear, heart or brain to anyone that feels alone and needs a friend. I am always open for a good friend. Regardless of my current condition(s). s*** happens and I won't let it get the best of me and I won't let it interfere with anything or anyone else. Stay furry... Get a hug or more, go live for the moment. ;-)
