    Sorry, I'm new here. I've never used a forum like this before. I've just existed with what goes on in my life/head. I honestly can't see how things can get any better, and I don't want to waste time waffling on and boring people for the sake of it. Does talking to people on here really help?

    I found it helped. I'm still here after 3 years to help those like those who helped me. My PM box is open to you if you need it, always.
    Also welcome. I hope you're not here for too long, for obvious reasons :)

    I'm just about to add you so you can get to me easily, you don't have to accept though. Look around the forum some, you might find some helpful answers or.. something, just by doing that. The chatroom can be helpful when you need instant help too, people are normally quite helpful in there. There are some jerks, but just ignore those.

    Yea it definitely helps. It's the only place where you can be 100% honest about how you feel and what's going on in your life. On top of that you'll meet a lot of people in equally or even worse situations!

    It helped me 2 years ago now I'm here to help others and I just come to chat when I'm bored at night :)

    it really depends on what you mean by help. it's helped by being able to post things here that I couldnt say in RL. I've met many wonderful people here. all with terrific advice and support And made a few friends here, another thing that I dont have in RL. But it hasnt stopped the suicidal thoughts and urges. but that isnt any fault of the forum or the members here.

    ive had my demons for so many years. At point where I'm almost afraid to let them go. they are a huge part of me now.

    Like wayne has suggested, check out the forum. They are a lot of different topics to post in and great people that can give you advice and help you through the difficult times. i know people here have helped me through more than my share of problems.

    Welcome and I hope you find the help you are looking for :arms:

    I'd say it does :). When I first joined I was amazed that other people actually felt like doing 'it', :laugh:. Plus they managed to talk me out of it a couple of times :tongue:.

    It's helped me immensely over the last week... Things got pretty bad for me recently and just to know that there are people out there going through similar problems as me was a relief... I hope to make some good friends here :smile:
