I want to tell you all something.

I know I haven't been around here much, but that doesn't change my feelings towards Groupthink. I love you all very much. When I was at my lowest point, you all made sure I was okay and dragged me back up. You got me into therapy. You made sure I was being taken care of. You were here when I had no one. Some of you used tough love, some were gentler. But you got me through it, and I am eternally grateful for that.

I know, firsthand, what depression does to a person. I know many of the folk in my life have suffered or currently suffer from it, present company included. I want you to know that no matter what your mind tells you, no matter how alone you may feel, your depression is lying. You're NOT alone. I promise you, someone out there cares. And I beg of you, to please reach out. Even if it's to me, some internet stranger with a mildly cool username.

Today hit me hard. And I wish that everyone in the world who suffered through what I did had the support system that I did. I feel like I can say on behalf of GT, that we're here for you. No matter what.
