New to this forum, and joined because I've been through some significant depression lately and looking for support, answers, or just some enlightenment. But first ... what can I really expect here? So far I see the only people that mention age are relatively young, so perhaps I can't expect much insight or answers? Not saying that opinions of younger members are not to be respected, but I know that I've changed significantly after hitting my 30's, and if I knew then what I know now, I'd be... yeah, sure you've heard that before. Also, why is it that no one (ie: authorities) get on here and intervene? After all, this is a suicide forum, and suicide is allegedly illegal. Yet I see messages that people have made the decision and planning to off themselves. Surely it would be easy to physically locate the people behind the usernames. Anyone care to clarify the expectations here. Thanks.
