hi, i'm L ("elle"). i'm new to SF but not new to suicide and depression. i'm almost 33 and have been depressed since i was 16 (oh my, half my life, lol). but it's only been in the last 3-4 years, esp last year, that my depression has become the worst ever. that's all i want to share right now... but i hope that i'll find on this forum members who truly understand what i am going through, because the supportive and well-meaning people in my life don't.
