Wish I had taken that cat photo--it is my favorite and I use it as my avatar just about everywhere I post
I understand of what you've went through as well--no I didn't suffer from depression, but I've had panic disorder with agoraphobia--At one time, years and years ago, I was completely housebound--then in 1996, my mom created an over-population of cat problem, where while she created the problem, did nothing to help out--left it up to me to handle--twice we were threatened with eviction, and last time round was successful in finding places for the cats, and am only down to two cats now--uh--don't ask how many there USED to be-then over last summer my mother passed away, right smack in the middle of the second time round eviction issue--Yikes!!---
I think a less strong person would have gone off the deep end already--LOL--So it's been one thing after another after another--and it's only been recently that I've decided to get my life back in gear again--but I'm realizing I have a lot of catching up to--that ten year gap has really cost me --it's like I have to learn the photo biz all over again.
Well enough rambling on---decided to post another pic
