    Hi there people

    I tried committing suicide when I was 17, though my parents like to refer to it as my 'incident'.
    I started SI'ing when I was 15 after I became depressed; didn't help that I had a eating disorder either.
    I have finally stopped SI'ing (I'm 23 now) for about 1 and half years, though I strongly feel the urge to do it again every now and then.
    I've never had therapy and stopped taking my AD's after about 8 months, but I feel happier than I've ever been. I still think that I'm a waste of space and a loser in general, but I think I owe it to myself to see if I can be strong enough to overcome my destructive nature. I don't want people to think that I've given in by being weak.
    So I still think about SI and suicide, but it would be great to talk to other people when I'm in one of my black holes, and to help other people out of theirs :)
