I joined a few months ago, but hadn't gotten around to posting anything. I'm the fourth generation in my family (that i know of) with depression issues, which I've had for about 25 years on and off. This has been a really hard year for me, and my depression came back with a vengence. When it started up, I was away from my family in a strange city with no one to talk to and I thought this website would help. But then I returned to my home instead and thought things would get better. They haven't, really.
