Hi everyone, I am currently writing an article on my website about depression mainly for moms. I have suffered myself from depression on and off for years, my goal here is to share Wealthy Affiliate with other women that struggle with this too.

Wealthy Affiliate has given me a purpose in life again. I love all the training and not only that the support and friends I have made here are like nothing else I have ever come across before. It is almost overwhelming!! Coming from someone that has suffered from depression Wealthy Affiliate has changed my life.

I would love to share this link on my site so others can see how amazing the community is here, so if you are feeling up to it please feel free to share. Has WA helped reduce depression in your life?

Cheers Justine

I share about the experience I've been going through before I found WA. Depression is not the term for this in my side as a mother that working far away from my family is homesick that I need to deal with after my daily choirs.

Since I discover WA everything has changed, and when my choirs finish I'm so happy and excited to seat in front of my computer, learning the thing that I want to do so long time ago. The computer is not my friend before but because of WA training lesson and tutorials I've discovered a lot of things about computer work that can help to develop my skills that will lead to better future.

Learning from expert people and successful online marketer without any hiding cost in this community is great opportunity.

Thank you so much for sharing, it sounds like you are really loving it here, I know that feeling about getting excited to get back to the computer each day after work or chores are done. It must be hard for you being away from your family, I cannot imagine that. You are in the right place to learn how to set up for a better future that's for sure. I wish you all the best with your journey here at Wealthy Affiliate :)

Hi there, its a tough road I know. I suffered from depression and unfortunately my partner does too, which I find hard at times. But luckily we have a strong relationship and this gets us through.

This is a great thread. I have thought about this too. WA is a great way to get your mind off your problems and put your focus on something much more positive. And there is never a reason to feel lonely with WA! I planned to do a niche on something similar when I finish Bootcamp and tie the two together for this very reason. WA can truly be an uplifting experience and everyone could use a dose of that! Thanks for bringing this up!

Hey Deb, your very welcome, you expressed that perfectly btw. WA does help you achieve a positive mindset, and I have also found that because I am so focused on my training and business etc, I don't find there is much time left in my day to focus or worry about personal issues. I have also learnt how to deal with my personal issues a whole lot better too since being a part of WA...Thanks for sharing Deb :)

Justine,

I suffer from depression, it's an ongoing process of recovery for the most part. While Wealthy Affiliate doesn't directly help me through depression, I'm grateful for this learning ground where you are given the tools to achieve your dreams.

Cheers,
Anh

Justine, it's okay. I do work at night as well. I've found thought, that I am not as productive at night so I'm switching to waking up earlier to work. :)

How is your business doing so far?

I suffer with a lot of physical problems with a degenerative spine, fibromyalgia, arthritis, congestive heart failure, and kidney damage. My life is full of chronic day to day pain. It was so debilitating I retired early two years ago. There are days where life gets overwhelming and there's no light at the end of the tunnel. I was recuperating from another back surgery in December, and trying to find a legitimate way to make money online and I found WA. My life and attitude dramatically improved since I joined. WA is home to a community of kind, caring people from all over the world. Everyone helps and supports each other in their endeavors to succeed. Since joining, my mental attitude has changed 100%. I wake up with a purpose in life, to succeed with an online business, to help others build their dreams, and to face life with a more positive attitude. WA has given me all of that.

My wife thinks I am not a salesman and she may be right. So for the time being my middle name remains, but she also thinks I am a bulldog and I can only hope she is right again.

I have suffered from depression at times over the years. I was not really suffering from depression when I joined WA but I think it can help you to stop becoming depressed as it is such a supportive, uplifting community.

Hi Erica, thanks so much for sharing, I really believe this too, WA is more than a training center. I have never found a community like this before in my life. :) Thank you :)

Not really depression but fear. After my Strokes I was afraid I would think like a normal person. After studying human behavior this is the last thing that I ever wanted. Unlike must people i would know the difference... which would just make things worse. I thought that I would rather die than be average. My Brain has been my advantage through life. As it turned out I tested in the top 10% in every category. I have been asked the question by doctors but never been diagnosed.

I've found things tough over the last decade being up against a financial wall, earning money online for me has always been a bit hit and miss, BUT finding WA has become a MASSIVE help to me, almost addictive and I've only been here a couple of weeks. The lesson Kyle gives you almost teach you by the click, actually it is by the click. Assuming you work here the way you get taught, I can't see why you wouldn't be successful

Hi Dave, pleased to meet you and welcome to WA. You are going to love it here, there is nothing else like this that I have ever seen. The training is awesome and I love that you can achieve as a beginner. Which was me btw.
I have been here about 2 and a half years now, just starting my second site and my first niche site is doing really well. I make sales every single day of the week now in that site. I love this community and I hope you will too!!! Good luck Dave and if you need any comments on your site or help let us know :)
