Link Roundup





Note: Link Roundup will now be posted on Saturday mornings. It's just a slight change to my blog schedule / routine. Other than that, Link Roundup will remain the same as always as I know many love this part of this blog.

  • Random Tutorial Generator

  • The Fight Goes On On Depression
    When depression sufferers fight, recover and go into remission we seldom even know, simply because so many suffer in the dark…ashamed to admit something they see as a personal weakness…afraid that people will worry, and more afraid that they won’t. We find ourselves unable to do anything but cling to the couch and force ourselves to breathe.

    When you come out of the grips of a depression there is an incredible relief, but not one you feel allowed to celebrate. Instead, the feeling of victory is replaced with anxiety that it will happen again, and with shame and vulnerability when you see how your illness affected your family, your work, everything left untouched while you struggled to survive.
