I am ok, but to be honest other than my close family, no one really checked in on me or ever checks in on me. I have or maybe it’s had a large circle of friends who were there at the beginning but over time it becomes less & less.
I didn’t choose this, there was an accident- not my fault & it’s now 5+ years, I’ve lost my whole life & ability to live the amazing life I had worked so hard for before. It’s taken many years & this year is better than last, but there is still so much I can’t do.
But I’m strong, so for 3 years I denied I had depression, until the day I had a break down & couldn’t stop crying. Nope my friends don’t know about that, cause they haven’t asked, when they haven’t visited.
I love seeing everyone’s life on Facebook, it helps to keep me connected, but when they put up the R U OK? messages I wanted to slap every single 1 of them. As if I would answer on FB, ‘No, because I have seen your face in 18 months!’
