Hi, my name is Ellen

I've used this site before on occasion but have decided to create an account now because my depression seems to be coming back. I feel nothingness. I'm sat here with no motivation to do anything and just feel like crying. I've got friends and family but they all know what I go through and still i feel alone. I message my friends about it probably too much and I don't want to sound like a broken record to them. 
Sorry that this isn't the most positive introductory post :(

    Hi Ellen. I'm sorry to read that you're feeling that way but I feel the same a lot of the time. It is hard when you feel like you can't properly turn to friends because they might not understand. 
    Let me know if you ever fancy a chat.

    It was very brave of you to make an account, you've already done the first step in helping yourself :) well done
    When you are feeling ready make a post about how you feel and we will support you

    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley
