    Hi, I'm seventeen years old and I have been struggling with depression for almost all of my life. With that came suicidal thoughts which led to attempts. I've been diagnosed with Manic-depressive Bipolar Disorder. These past 5 years have been really tough on me. In 2006 I was in a mental instituion from january 2-11 again January 30-31. Again in Feb. 13-20. The The 20th I overdosed for my first time and was sent back to the institution. I resided there until the 16th of August. I was once again sent there in November on the 7th and was released on the 26th of December. From there I went a few months without doing anything bad, but I decided to stop taking my medication and that led me to my downfall leading me to overdose again on the 6th of July. I was then released from the hospital on the 11th and since then I have lived with my manager from work. I can trust this woman to no extent, or so I thought. Today I just found out that she has told every single thing I've told her to the guy I like, but that's a different story.

    I'm still struggling. A lot in fact. But I'm hanging in there, I suppose. I need friends who understand what I'm going through and I was hoping the find that through here.

    There is a lot more to my story than this, but this is just a breif background of my history. I look foward to talking to everyone...

    Hi there!

    I'm very very new here myself, and I already feel very comfortable here. It's really nice to find somewhere with people that understand, and don't judge you.

    Welcome in.
