Not only do I live a few blocks away from family, but with my parents working I am stuck unpacking our 2-story home. And did I mention it is over 115 degrees and we barely got our cable installed (we are still patiently…

To All:

Recently a very close friend of mine was diagnosed with MDD (major depression disorder). It was a shock to me and to her family as well as other close friends she confided in. The reason for the post is for all who is reading to understand that depression is not only a serious illness, it can also be undetected. Let me give you a brief summary of my dear friend. Straight A student, taking the hardest classes, in newspaper, does community service, the loudest craziest person… Continue
