Hi all, Having spent the past month posting on a site that deals with depression, I found myself feeling that it wasn't the place for me as I could not discuss how I felt when things get really bad. I'm relieved that SF exists, and the rules in place to govern its safe usage are strictly enforced. I'm going through a bad time at the moment, and feel very scared at how deeply difficult things have become. Yet at the same time this sense of danger has also given rise to thoughts which help to keep me safe. It's some of these helpful thoughts I'll be looking to post on here hoping they may be of help to others. At the same time, I dare say I'll be looking for help to overcome a really rocky part of my life. Bart.
