Good luck.

Depression is not something to take lightly. Talk to a pro asap.

I just needed someone to talk to, and I didn't want my family to know the depths of my despair. I am somewhat better and mostly over it by now, but it still is there in the background to some extent.
Not to be a wet blanket, but this is a topic I have some experience with. As Doc0 said, don't diagnose yourself. Talk to a pro.

I feel like I owe you fine people an update. I have been working at my new job for 5 weeks now and all is well. I was lucky enough to find a really good job at a really good company, working for and with people I really like. I can easily finish my working life at this place. Thank you for all your comments, advice, support, and well wishes. It really helped me out of a pretty dark place in life.

This is one story that did indeed have a happy ending.

This is excellent news! Thanks for the update. You can be proud that you were strong enough to reach out for help when you needed it, and you can be equally proud of the resilience you demonstrated by coming through this challenge so well.

Great news! Glad you'll be able to choose when to go instead of having to go because of a bad situation
