thank you for sharing all this and hope it makes you feel better. That is why not keeping it all to yourself but confiding in someone trustworthy would for sure feel therapeutic. It is a good thing you did to tell your friend and because she herself has gone through depression, it would be easier for her to understand how you might be feeling. Please know that depression is a very widespread condition. most people experience depression or just feeling quite low at some point on the rocky road that can be this life when things look more down than up. opening up to someone initially mightt feel difficult- but once you start- you will be able to express yourself even more. Do consider counseling or seeing a therapist. You might be able to see one even if you are not covered by insurance because many towns have centers that would offer this type of support.
