Punkdoc...depression is never far from me .....great credit to you to open up. I have family that mostly does not talk having lost the one that did. My niece though fills that role, same level as me ( without the depression which maybe I have always had but thought it anchored in events) and same empathy efc. I found something...not solace...in being a samaritan, working with the CAB, Victim Support and others. Gardening started as a chore but developed as passion....a passion that sometimes desserts me. I find humour covers a lot though. As you say negativity is the controlling factor.
Currently been trying to resolve issues with someone but as we are both stubborn, volatile,people those issues are worse than ever.
Fidget, having a dog is a help too.
my experiences however do not deny me feelings of empathy, sympathy or of wanting to help so it's not all bad I guess
Hey, another agastache has opened
