"I started year 2 in March, and I don't know excately what I thought would happen after the "firsts" were finished, but I too fell into depression because I feel I have gotten worse. Thankfully, I have a good friend that will…"
"Thank you all for your responses. It is comforting to know others are out there, and I am not alone in the way I feel. (Although I am sorry we are all in this so-called club.) it truly has become a one day, or even one minute/hour at a time.
