Sitting here reflecting on my life and just wrote an article about my depression on my website. I've never had it before but man has it reared its ugly head due to my life circumstances.

It dawned on me that I'm sure a lot of you are feeling the same way and that is why we have migrated to Wealthy Affiliate. To find a place that we can feel welcomed, have a community and even gain some friendships as well as earn a living. Isn't that what life is all about?

I had a very strong and well paying career in healthcare. It ended 2 months ago when I quit my job due to Identity theft at my workplace. This left me devastated financially and emotionally.

It was about the time that I thought that I couldn't become anymore depressed that I found WA. It has given me the opportunity to feel good about myself. To feel good about the information that I am putting together for others to grow and learn from. To feel good just being part of a great community.

I am slowly and surely getting my website built up, getting a lot of views and with any luck the referrals will come!!

I am surviving~

Will you be setting up an affiliate site first, or are you working a page related to your healthcare experience as your niche? As a dental pro, I had thought I may do both as well.

Hi there, I really relate to what you're saying - I very much understand depression too and have been through many bouts of it through my lifetime. Thankfully, I've managed to come out of that for a long time - but I was still definitely searching for something when I found WA. That was last august, in 2015. There are some great people here and it's been an amazing experience - I've certainly learnt more than I could have ever imagined. :)

I wish you all the best, and, trust me, nothing feels better than when depression finally releases you from your fears. God bless you. You'll find what you're looking for here!

Thanks. Some days are harder than others. I think we can all be survivors. Just find that bright light in the day.

Yes we can all be survivors.
You have to stamp out the self doubt and you cannot change the past, but you can change the future.
PM me if ever you need to chat, as I know it helped me.
