    Am I the only one?

    Does anyone else find some of the advice people try to give you for dealing with depression is the same advice they would give you if you are having a 'bad day' or just feeling 'down'? It makes me feel more alone when they don't understand that depression is an illness. I know a lot of the...

    my favourite poem

    Tis true my form is something odd, but blaming me is blaming God. Could I create myself anew I would not fail in pleasing you. If I could reach from pole to pole or grasp the ocean with a span, I would be measured by the soul, the mind's the standard of the man.
