I've decided to join. Not because I'm feeling suicidal or have contemplated anything similar to it. I remember checking out this forum for "x" reason a long time ago and contemplated joining, but for some reason I didn't. I remembered the forum today and I decided to join. Reason? Beats me really. In a completely non-offensive way, I find this forum interesting, compelling even. I remember dealing with a slitter once...not happy memories since I wasn't the best person ever back then. I couldn't understand her and insisted on being a realistic person rather than a comforting one. That's in the past though, she got over her problems and we're still in good terms. I may not be able to give proper advice to anyone, but I still feel like joining this community for some reasons. Hope to see you all around, the work you do is admirable, really. By the way, my real name's not Eric. Out of fear of being "stalked" by people I know, I'll use this alias for the time being.
