Ive always deal with depression, since highschool, and it started in middle schooo, I grew with this, its not something that appeared as adult, and became normal to me, my personality was absorved by a low mood, and problems.

So after I grew up, maybe when I was 25, a light bulb went on, and thought to search for sites about depression, I didnt realize could be something as a forum.

My native language is spanish, and becaues english is the most common language world wide I knew would have to search for english sites. Also was interesting to meet someone from another country. So search in english wasnt very easy, but it reallt helped me to improve my english, and put my previous knowledge in practice.

Maybe at my 25 I first joined a depression forum, Im 29 now.

With this I mean that for me depression is something I was dealing long time before join to a forum or look for sites about this. Was the same for someone else too ? Spendkng long time dealing aftee join to a site like this ?

I'm 43 and I think I joined my first mental health forum when I was in my early 30's. I spent a couple of years there until the forum kind of died out. I had a long hiatus from mental health forums until I joined this forum about 2 years ago.

Depression was always present for me, but in very hidden state. Only few years ago it sprouted and started bothering me a lot. i have joined Forum just not longer than 2 weeks ago. That is my first forum.

A long time. I had searched before but hadn't found a forum. Searched periodically when feeling down. Then found this forum when googling about depression and thoughts that I was having.
