To whom it may concern,
I've been battling my depression for a really really long time now. For years and years. But I can't hangle it anymore. I am in a darker place than I ever was before. I really need help. Now more than ever I want it. Mainly because its affecting my relationship with my beautiful girlfriend. I don't want to ruin the best thing in my life because of my depression. I want help, but I don't have money to see a therapist. So I don't know where to start. I live in a small town with the nearest city 45 mins away. I will make the drive but I don't know to where. I can't seem to find any help. And that's what I need help on. I wish there was cheap, if not free help. I'm a broke college student with no insurance. I want help for the first time in my life. It shouldn't be this hard to find some. Thank you for reading this.
Hi Zorrie, I'm glad you reached out to us. I know you are depressed and it must be even harder dealing with your depression when you are living in a small town. I don't know what you are depressed about, but if you write back to us giving us more information about what is bothering you, we will help you out better. If you would rather talk to someone on the phone you can always call us at the Trevor Lifeline at 866-4-U-TREVOR. If you are not comfortable talking to us on the phone and would rather chat with one of us over the internet, you can go on TheTrevorChat. There is also a site that you can talk to your peers, there might be some people that are going through what you are going through so try out www.trevorspace.org.
You mentioned that you have a girlfriend that you care for very much, maybe she can help you too. Just remember that there are people that love you and are always here for you, so just reach out to us and tell us exactly what is bothering you and we will be glad to help!
