Former Lurker Here
« on: July 05, 2011, 10:23:31 am »
This is one of the most useful and respectful forums I've come across in a very long time, and I've been lurking and reading your conversations for a while with avid interest. I'm joining now in hopes of joining in said conversations, obviously. :)

I am a college student in New York, living with a very understanding flatmate and a very nosey puppy who has been known to stick his nose in candles if not watched carefully. I'm studying English and Philosophy.

I went through several years of being very dedicated to the Pagan path, then took a break when my depression got the best of me. While I don't consider myself new, I'm taking this time around very slowly, learning as much as possible and keeping things extremely simple in order to help me focus. It's working well so far and I hope to continue with this path for many years to come.

Welcome! I also am a Pagan with depression and actually just started a thread about how depression (and other mental disorders) impacts our spirituality. Hope you find what you're looking for!
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.

Welcome! I, too, have depression, and would recommend Sage's thread. :)

What kind of puppy do you have?
Pray drunk. Hex sober.

I shall definitely have to read that. Knowing I'm not the only one always helps!

A white pomeranian. He's my substitute for a boyfriend. :P

Thanks to all for the warm welcome.
