This is a post about seeking support.
I first went online seeking support about four years ago.
Before this I did not own a computer,
and when I did go online I was using my friend’s.
He would let me use his computer when he was at work.
Before this I had not even googled anything.
I was never very confident about computers.
I could not find answers locally,
and it was through the online community that I started to understand Depression.
I could read essays or diaries, and so I started to understand my own symptoms.
There are cleverer people than I who can explain Depression better than I can.
It really helped me.
I came to rely on certain blogs or sites,
and would check every day when I had my coffee.
At this point I got my own computer,
and it became a real source of comfort.
I am grateful for the blogs available,
and grateful to the authors who have helped me so much.
