I'd Give You Mine If I Could

Hi, NotYetAlive here...

I had a liver transplant in 1989, but I would gladly give it up for any of you awaiting transplants if I could. I have a serious, serious problem with depression and Despair, a major mood disorder that we only discovered after the transplant. I've joined other groups like this, sharing my story, and have been almost universally shot down for being depressed after a transplant, as though a transplant should fix all of life's problems. Because I got mine as a transplant and had spent my entire life until then dying, I had never been prepared for life...and it's been a suffocating struggle of depression, self-harm, and Despair. With that caveat out of the way, let me say that I would like to be a blessing to any and all of you who will allow me to be. I hope this community won't be as judgemental as the others, and I'll have to leave if it is. But I'm hopeful it won't be. If any of you would like a friend, I'm here.
