About & What's New

Hello, my name is Aquinas and I'd like to welcome you to this site. I, like 25 million other Americans, suffer from Depression. I have been diagnosed with Severe Major Depressive Disorder and struggle with it every day. When I found out a few weeks ago that this was what was wrong with me, I went searching on the Internet for information so I could make an informed decision as to what I should do and how I could cope. My full story will be in the Personal Stories section sometime very soon. But in short, I've created this page to try and put the best resources I could find all in one place so maybe I can help others who are struggling with this disease.

    This is a great site for information on depression and other mental illnesses. Lots of online resources as well as addresses to order free pamphlets about mental illness.

    Great place for information on bipolar or manic depressive disorder.

    Many people are wondering about St John's Wort (Hypericum). This site is a great source of information on this herbal depression remedy.

    Info on Nortriptyline (Pamelor, Aventyl)
    Since this is the antidepressant that I take, I have some links that have information that is specifically on Nortriptyline or the tricyclic family.

    Newsgroups/IRC/Mailing Lists


    The newsgroup, affectionately known as ASD by those of us who frequent it, is a wonderful place to go for support and advice from those people who are going through depression also. I recommend lurking (that's just reading) posts for awhile to get used the flavor of the group, then jump in whenever you feel comfortable. There are two sub-newsgroups to ASD.


    These are newer groups that don't have many postings. But in time, I think they'll be worth reading so keep a close eye on them.


    There are several good channels dealing with depression on the Undernet IRC Network. Below are two of the best:
