In reply to I need support...., posted by JennyAnn on March 8, 1999, at 20:27:16

I'm sorry you didn't find the support you sought earlier. How can we help? By helping you feel you are not alone? (not even close!) By helping you *understand* what you already *know*? If you feel shamed because someone in the mental health field shouldn't be depressed - baloney! Should an MD feel ashamed when he gets the flu, or cancer, because he is in the medical profession? Or an orthopod breaking a leg because he should "know better"? With the large percentage of the population being depressed at one time, how is the mental health profession supposed to be 100% free of it? Wouldn't patients be able to relate better because the practitioner becomes a human being to relate to and empathize with, and becomes someone who can relate firsthand because they know what it's like?
I feel like I got on a soapbox. I'll have to leave to someone else or another time to provide the soft touch. I just want to let you know that you shouldn't be ashamed - no one should - of something that you have little (any?) control over and cannot simply will away. No matter what profession you are in. I don't know what kind of support you need, but I hope this helps a little.
