    Hi, I'm new here. Just wanted to give a brief intro & "hello".

    Do you really wanna know me? Many think I'm complicated & difficult. I often don't know even what to say, but gonna try if you'll listen. Thanks.

    I've struggled w/ depression much of my life. Lots of things added to it....abuse, family history, bad relationships, being a loner, being made fun of, ect. I won't go into it all here...maybe more later.

    I've been hospitalized before...been on many different meds...therapy (group & individual). Have attempted suicide before & am considering now (have method, gathering means, making final arrangements), but am not sure. I have a cat who I love & is very attached to me but doesn't get along well w/others. My faith & fear of hell hold me back. But, don't know if I can keep going on.

    Will things ever get better? Will I ever be happy? The promise of tomorrow seems less & less.

    I also fight an eating disorder, PTSD, insomnia, fear, & anxiety. But, am tired of fighting.

    I don't want to go on, but there'a a part of me that just isn't quite ready to let go. I'm afraid...things are getting overwhelming.

    Ok...enough for now. So, do you really wanna know me?

    Welcome to SF - (ok if I call you Serena?)......... we are complex beings who believe life should be straightforward, but it never is and we find we need more resources to cope with this and when things go wrong. This is a wonderful place for exploring all of this and letting it all out with no judgement or criticism honey. We look forward to getting to know you, really!! :)
