WE MUST ALL GIVE A WORD

I'm writing to each and everyone of you out there. I'm feeling a bit upset that I can't answer all the problems on this site. I know that I'm not supposed to give answers to everyone.

Anyone with depression before pm?

I've suffered from depression most of my life, and have been on antidepressants for many years, but have never had a complete remission. I guess I was hoping that getting a pm would help, since my physical health would improve, and maybe alleviate some of the depression. (I've been sick for nearly 3 years, dx with fibromyalgia, and fatigue that had been increasing in intensity over the past year. So my depression had really been getting worse.)
It's been 3 weeks since getting my pm, Medt...

TO MY FRIENDS

My Friend,

I'm writing to tell you that you're not alone. We must not give up hope. We must stand in this fight together. I'm not going to leave this earth until I have move these mountains that stand before me. I want to ask each and everyone of you to stand in faith and pray for others.
