"Hi Mike, That is great to know. Thank you. I think I am getting on OK at the moment. The biggest struggle I am having is with the language. I live down in Cheongju (effectively right in the middle of the country). It is a much, much smaller city…"

"I just want to say thank you for all the responses and I am sorry it has taken me a while to get back to you all. I am hoping that it is just homesickness and me adjusting to such a large change in my life. Like Rick was saying, I think it might be…"

"I don't think it is depression; I think it is homesickness.  It is a far different culture than what you grew up with and because of that you feel you don't belong.  My wife suffered similar reactions from moving from Buffalo to…"

"In my case, leaving depression consisted of two changes. 1) I identified what it was about my life that I could not accept 2) I accepted it It took me a decade to find this out.  I hope it will go more quickly for you. The acceptance had to do…"

Well, I am not really sure where to begin with this. But I feel like I need some help and the people on here seem like a great group. I am a long time lurker but this is my first post. I am 22 years old and British.Basically, over the past year I have had a couple of episodes of depression (each lasting between 4 and 6 months and often linked to something happening in my life at the time). The first time was just after I finished at University and the second time was when I began a temporary…See More

Brother Joseph replied to Vytautas's discussion What Do We Learn From History?
"To me history is about the people. Facts, dates, and events are nice, but tell me about the people. Men like John Adams, Joseph Smith Jr., and other great men are why I study history. To find that even ordinary men can rise to greatness inspires me…"
