Dear Kim

I am sorry to hear about your daughter. My daughter too suffers from depression. She has been told she has post traumatic distress disorder. It has been really difficult for her over the years. She has to stay on medication for the depression for the rest of her life. I have a hard time relating to this condition, as I have never had depression problems, but I do my best to help her. She tells me that I can't really help her with this, but I give her support irregardless.

Peace and Blessings
