    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.

    Hi Eric,

    Welcome to the forum. You never really said why you are here. I for one am uncomfortable being observed as some science project. If your purpose is altruistic forgive me for being suspicious of your motives. But if you are here as some voyeur observing suicidal behavior then I'm not comfortable with you being here.

    Thanks for the warm welcomes.

    @Danny: I'm definitely not doing the latter, my apologies if my presence makes you uncomfortable. I still don't know why I felt compelled to join this forum, and yet, here I am.

    I can offer advice to the best of my abilities, but I'm afraid I'm not very good at that.
