I would like to thank everyone at GT who has helped me through this difficult time. I'm very grateful for the support, guidance and wit of the Hivemind.
A few people have asked if I have sought help with my depression (thank you for your concern). The answer is yes; I've been in therapy for a few months and I've recently started taking an antidepressant. I have been doing some super scary googling about side effects (I'm a genius) but I'm trying to be optimistic.
It's taken me a long time to come to terms with being clinically depressed. It's still hard that my (former) significant other couldn't be there for me. But knowing GT is makes a big difference.
