  1. Hey,
    I just signed up so I thought I ought to let ya'll know who I am.
    My name is Helen.
    I'm a 20 year old from New Zealand and currently studying fine arts.
    I've had alot of trouble with depression and other things since I was about 12.
    In 2006 my mum committed suicide and in 2007 my dad lost his battle with cancer and passed away.
    I'm having a rough time right now and finding it hard to carry on.

    I can't imagine the pain you're feeling right now.

    One good thing about art is that you are able to express yourself and it could help with some of the pain.

    If you ever feel like passing in, remember your parents and live for them.
  12. Thank you all for your warm welcomes. I didn't expect so many replies! Thank you. I look forward to getting to know you all.
