    Thought I'd check in and see how everyone's doing. Great to hear that Kenneth Sims, Wordsmyth and Patsboy are keeping it together.

    I've been spending much of the last six months trying to help my son deal with depression; it's one of the most difficult things I've ever had to do. Especially at the beginning, it was like an alien being had latched onto his brain and taken it over. Would take me a few hours to get a glimpse of the boy I knew and loved. After working on it all summer, he's back to around 80% of where he was, and seems ready to face life's challenges again. This has made me even more aware of how difficult it is. You guys have my admiration for grinding through it every day. It's hard as hell. Please keep going.

    I'm finding it astonishing just how many people are affected by this in my conversations with others.

    I think many people suffering from depression aren't aware of it because they never have known any different. They instinctively build coping mechanisms around it to maintain baseline functionality.

    Especially if your depression starts at a very early age.
