My worlds collided on Sunday. The gentle voice could not control the "evil" voice. On the brink of destroying the best relationship i've ever had. Went to the doctor and was prescribed Paxil - had a bout of this many years ago and this worked last time. Spent most of yesterday reading about depression and feel like I should have taken care of this a year ago. A YEAR AGO! Can't believe i have felt so bad for so long. Guessing this has been going on for 2 years.

Not sure why i'm writing on a website to total strangers. Feel as though it may validate my feelings. A need for understanding.
