 *Let it be known, the blog was also created because the author of this website needed a creative outlet. Although attempting to appear selfless, he is about as self-centered, and attention needy as the typical blogger / 5 year old child.

       Depression is a curious thing. Much of what we know about it is speculative, and although it is becoming less stigmatic of a subject, mental illnesses are affecting our society more greatly than ever.

       Many people live with this each day. It indirectly affects all around us, in particular the ones we love most. Being in the paralyzing grip of any mental disorder seems to be of itself, a paradox. A vicious cycle. It is something we feel but can not explain. It is hard for us to know if what we are feeling is normal, or if we are sick. The unknowing only enhances the feeling.

       I want to fight this, but how? For each of us it is different. Everyone goes through trials, and all can come through victorious, but everyone's style needs to be different. I hope that this can serve as a platform to help one another find their style. To be Solaced.

Up top are the ways that I do my thing.

       I have learned to be happy and have a fulfilling lifestyle when I, only months ago thought there was nothing left to live for. After years of humble learning, several figurative slaps in the face (there were a few literal ones, but that is for a different blog), and a week long stay in the hospital as an inpatient in the psych ward, It is totally time to share what I know, and gather the much more important knowledge of you guys into one place. I hope you find your place here!
