How I got my groove back

Visitors Story: Two years ago, I fell head over heels for a boy I met online. We met in person after a few months of online chatting and everything went really well for 6 months and all of a sudden he told me that his depression came back and he couldn't be in a relationship with me anymore.


I was heartbroken and completely devastated. I really didn't see that coming. What was really difficult for me was that he was suffering from major depression and i felt I couldn't do anything to help him. I offered support but he just told me he had to be alone and that he was very sorry.

It was hell. I was living abroad at that time, my friends and family were thousands of miles away. I didn't want to tell my mom about it since I didn't want to worry her.

I was miserable and feeling suicidal. I went online and googled sites about relationships then I stumbled onto a helpline. I called the helpline, talked to a volunteer there for hours! At the end of the conversation I felt much better. The next day I called again and talked to a different volunteer again for hours.

It was life saving. The volunteers were real angels. It wasn't easy but slowly I started looking at the big picture and picked myself up by doing things that I enjoy. It took me a long time to get over the whole thing. God bless those volunteers who spend time and effort listening to other people.
