:shock: Is it really over a year since a BtB'er sent us something for our Experiences with Depression page?

If you have not already stumbled across this page, please take a look: http://www.beatingth...experiences.htm


No pressure, it is not compulsory, :P but if anyone would like to contribute then we are always delighted to get new material. I know that for many people reading how other people deal with their depression can be very helpful, especially when you are feeling alone and that there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

We can publish with your BtB name or totally anonymously - entirely up to you. If you want to send us something, then this is the place: admin@beatingthebeast.com

Hoping to hear from you!

love Jillie xxxxx

Hi CrazyDog,

Yes, thank you, I do have your 'Experiences'. Thank you so much for sending it - we will add it to the others shortly.

Don't forget everyone, by sharing what we have been through we help others who are perhaps newly diagnosed and don't quite know what has hit them. We give perspective and hope, and help others not to feel so alone.

We always have room for more contributions!

love Jillie xxxxxxxxx

I was reading mine the other day when the forum was down. I realised I wrote it 5 years ago, and I was so full of optimism, and the past 5 years have been really crap :lol:

I tried emailing the address above, but it bounced back to me.

Anyway, I'm just wondering what's happened to my story that I submitted ages ago, as it hasn't appeared on the site yet. I do understand if you're busy and haven't got round to it, but if it's been lost or something, let me know - I have another copy saved on my computer.

Thanks. :D
