New Here, Not Sure What to Expect

I'll try to keep this short. I've gone to war with depression a few times in my life and now, at 32 years old, I'm rather over it. I always described my "depression" as something I can't really defeat but instead something I just try distance myself from--or it just kind of slowly reels me back in. Don't mean to wax philosophical or anything but I digress.

Anyway, I'm a pretty easy-going and sociable guy on the outside... big family and good friends, successful career, and a big heart. Sounds great and all but on the inside it's a bit of a different story. I'm constantly battling anxiousness about my future, whether or not I'll get to start a family one day, missing out on life's simple pleasures and growing old with regret. BUT, I've actually got a great sense of humor so if there's anything I can contribute just let me know!

Pleasure to meet you all :)

:welcome: to the forum. Ongoing anxiety can be so disturbing for some people, I understand. I am pleased that you have found a way to cope with depression.

:welcome: Hello and welcome! Depression and anxiety are always stepping in and out of my life. I've come to terms with trying to learn to live with and work with it, rather than take it to battle. It gets tiring. Glad you've found this place, see you round!
