For a long time I have invited this friend and made nice things for him to eat. He has a severe endogen depression and his friends have left him one by one. Many tiems I have called him and he was not available. So I have waited until he is in shape of seeing people. Today I have been feeling down. More that down: I have a depression and even went to the doctor. And this friend called me. I told him I was depressed and I needed to be cuddled.. So he invited me out for diner right now. Isn´t he sweet! For him that´s a lot. We are going to a nice secluded restaurant where he can feel comfortable. I never thought that of all people he would come to the rescue. I put on my BEST clothes for him Happy posting

Hi my dear friend. You were so kind to your friend because depression can make a person feel really sad. It must have been awful when some of his friends left him. You were so supportive to him and now he is doing the same for you. I hope that you feel much happier now. Hug.

Yes I am. And I went to a very nice shrink to help me out. It turned out that the venom I took to stop smoking unbalanced my brain. I´m taking now some ansiolitic pills that have helped a lot and my friends have all been angels. I asked my best friend, the one that invited me to the Caribibean (he´s a doctor), for diner to tell me how crazy I was. He said that not to worry, I was as lunatic as ever and that was nothing. He is also a sweet. His wife couldn´t come but "lent me" her husband to cuddle me. I thanked her, of course. Hug

Well, that's the miracle of giving unconditionally. I do think you have been a good friend to your depressed friend and it is great that he appreciates your help and concern. That's why you are getting what you wanted. You deserve it! Enjoy your date.

I know this is what you did good to him and now he return the favor back. It is really nice of him. That's what I call friend, some friends are just love to mess around and never care about other when they are in trouble... Only good friend like you are able to take a Truth friend relationship place. take care and Im happy for you

Hi marguicha...and what a pleasant surprise you got. It is always so important to remember the needs of our friends when they call on us so that when we need them they will be there for us. I am sure this was a very hard thing for your friend to do, but you had alwasy been there for him and now you were calling in the favor of needing him to be there for you. What a blessing when we have friends that we can count on in time of need. flutterby

Dealing with depression and anxiety isn't a fun thing to deal with. I go through both and its hard at times on me. But it was nice that he did that for you. It can help you both when you are depressed. Try and talk about it and see if you both can try to solve the problem.

You have a REAL true friend that cares about you! Real friends are very hard to come by anymore so it's very special when a friend comes threw for you when you are down. I hope you try to stay happy. I know depression is very hard to deal with sometimes but when you have caring friends to cheer you up and make you happy depression soon fades away when you know you are loved and not forgotten.
