My apologies to Lionel Richie for changing his lyrics, but I think it may actually be me I'm looking for. I have a wonderful wife of 36 years, two grown children who are well-accomplished, and two amazing grandsons who are crazy about me and I adore them as well. I have a great job and haven't missed a pay check due to the pandemic.

Sooo, why am I here?

Two years ago my doc diagnosed me with MDD. The truth is, I have been battling, hiding, and denying depression for at least 20 years. I suppose that diagnosis is accurate but I probably fit in many of the DSM-5 classifications. As one can see, I have no outward reason for the dark cloud above my head but it is always there. I am waiting for my insurance to clear and I will start therapy and see where it might lead.

This looks like a great place to learn, participate, and grow. It's nice to meet you all.

Thank you. I have an appointment next Wednesday. They assigned me to a resident who is completing her requirements for her license and I’m OK with that.
