The pain of losing, the pain of anxiety, the pain of depression... there really is a lot of pain in the world for us, huh? There is a great song from musical theater called, &...

I think dogs do help shape us. They also make us feel better in so many ways. Actually, not just dogs but our pets in general. When we are down, they give us a reason to get up and face the day. When we don't feel like getting out of bed, they make us - either having to go out or to eat. Pets are wo...

Princess - do you know what led to your depression? It's usually an incident, either past or present that leads us down this awful spiral. When I first suffered years ago, it was that five people close to me died within a span of 6 months. I was on quite the overload! That led to a nervous breakdown...

You know who gives me a lot of love, aside from my family and fiance, of course? Our dog. God... she loves me. I know I get angry at her often, but I cannot deny the love this dog shows me every day. :-)

Hollyann... you are an interesting person who I'm sure always has something great to say. Please don't ever feel that the things you say and do don't mean anything. Because they DO. You're a real asset to DU, and I for one would like to hear more about YOU.

I agree with SOUP that it does take remarkable courage to share your feelings and put yourself out there. Sharing is a part of life that makes the circus worth it. We're all here for you, vaya. I hope you share again.
