    1. I feel relieved just knowing about you. Hoping to hear about the phone meeting, so I can start to attend. And, wondering if someone would be willing to be a sponsor, at least temporarily, to get me started. I’ve used the 12 steps for 30 years now for other problems, and I know they work. Should I leave my phone number?

  1. I’m just not sure. Sometimes I’m so happy, then other times I feel too far gone. Sometimes I feel like I have the best friends and family ever, yet others, I feel so alone, so left out. I can feel so depressed, but I always manage to convince myself that I’m being overdramatic, I’m overexagerating, that I have no reason to feel this way, that some people actually get bullied, get abused, while I haven’t been bullied in years. My worst enemy is myself, I tell myself what no one else has the guts to say. And no one knows how I feel. I keep it inside, because I just don’t know what they could possibly say to make me feel better. I’d know they’re lying.

    1. You are right: no one knows how you feel. But if one has been depressed then they have some idea about what you are talking about. I do hope you continue to speak here at this site. I want to help as I can –having been there myself. You

  2. I stepping out on faith and i really am afriad,sad. And crying from time and time. I have reached out to a DA program in Elizabethcity that has become very helpful to me in a very short period of time and for that I do greatful. This lady has given shared a wealth of airport. She gives me something to hang on to until our next meeting. When the bad feelings attack I use my mini goal thing skills that I want to be proud to have reached. I will call her mrs. Dee. Thanks. I have a long road to travel, but I had to start se were. Other wise my family would be buying me a head-stone. I made it to see mothers day with a small amount of hope.

    1. Hi Marie
      You are taking the best step possible in reaching for support. Please continue to attend meetings and you will begin to feel more hope and see change in yourself. Been there and done that. Set a small goal everyday–say the serenity prayer as often as you can and always keep in touch with others in the group. Please keep in contact with us.

  3. I hope not!!! I’ve been with the program 30 years (12 steps) and never paid a fee yet. Trust me–no fees–you don’t have to pay anything and you don’t have to say anything..Hugh

    1. Hi Brooke
      As far as we know there are no groups listed for Michigan. Hard to believe I know but hopefully the more reads our literature and BLOGS they can learn how possibly to start their own group. There is a great need for our program of recovery. Thank you for your concern and interest in what we are doing to help those still struggling with depression. Hugh

  4. I am loving this website and all the hope it offers to the Depressed and their loved ones.
    And…..I wish someone one would edit the typo’s! My OCD is going into overwhelm by all the the typo’s in your commentary about the program and what it offers.
    Thank you

  5. I know this web page gives quality based content and other data,
    is there any other site which gives these stuff in quality?

    Here is my web-site :: Las Vegas escorts [Lillie]

  6. I think I’m too emotional of a person a lot of the time. I approach everything from an emotional or loving mindset. Every love I’ve had, she ended up cheating on me. Now that I type this out, I realize I was never depressed before I discovered love and relationships. It has affected my outlook on life, my job… Everything. Some days I’m fine, some days all I do is crave the love of a past relationship. When I talk about it, all I can think is how it sounds like I’m whining. People say it’s foolish to let a relationship break you down so much. But it’s not my choice. I can’t help it.

  7. I used to be able to pull myself out of the funk of depression . . . but these days I seem to stay there and not be able top get out and the more I’m in the harder it is to try. I’m really tired of feeling this way. I wish there was a group in my area.
