ANNOUNCEMENT: I am suffering from depression for more than 20 years now.
Dear friends,2015 I lost a very dear friend to suicide. I did not know (and never even suspected) he suffered from depression. And he did not know I do, too.
Depression is the dirty little secret you hide in the darkest corner of your closet. Society makes you believe you are weak and a looser, if you are suffering from depression. But that is not true.

first entry has been posted...short and to the point...possibly interesting, but maybe not, at least for now. my main focus will be here on DA of course, but i'll post things at both places and not always the same content. we'll see where this goes and what transpires over the next year and beyond
