Ideas for where to find mental health assistance

                                          I didn't realize that

                                         there was help available...   

        I felt so alone and I wasn't myself.  I didn't

   understand what was going on inside my thoughts. 

My friends told me that I was weak, and that I should

suck it up and be grateful that I had the good fortune in my life that I did...    I was really afraid to the call the helpline,

but I'm so glad that I did.  They taught me that depression is 

a life-threatening illness.... it wasn't like I was a failure or a loser.... I want to thank the counselor who took my call.  You gave me hope and now I am connected to the resources I need.  Things are so much better now and I have things I'm looking forward to... my friends and family are now more understanding and we are making future plans too.
