I decided to join this community because of the wonderful message boards and postings. I suffer with anxiety and depression and this site has really made a difference in terms of my recovery. This site has such an abundance of inspirational materials; support groups and other valuable information. I am joining hoping to make friends and find others that I may be able to encourage and support on their spiritual journey, as I also am looking for encouragement and support. This site will offer me an opportunity 24 hours a day whenever feel I need some encouragement, an opportunity to find like minded individuals that can offer that. I am hoping that this too will be in aid in my battle of defeating depression. I'm taking a huge risk and step by even completing an "About Me" box---I generally will isolate and separate myself. But, I'm trying to make that be a habit of the past. So, please email me...let's talk, share, support, encourage and learn from one another.
