Hello My Name Is Alex

  1. There are many things that I would like to share here in my introduction, but everything I would fill to say I suppose will grow as I develop more on this site the longer I go throughout life. My name is Alex, and I have survived an attempt to suicide in my life, also I have survived a suicide of one dealing with my foster mother, another suicide to two close friends, and had a very close intimate partner in my past due to suicide, one in which I never maintained the courage or the desire to talk too again. Other than all of this, I lived a life full of drug abuse and full of untreated depression that destroyed many friendships and relationships inside of my life. I have been in therapy for a very long time, undergoing many forms of treatment with talk therapy and medication, have joined a few social groups, work hard in school to become a clinician myself, and more of anything. I am alone, not much family to talk to because most of who I as adopted to is dead or distant or in prison. I have a very distant life from anyone, spent a lot of times alone by myself on the holidays, cut my social life away for the most part, and continue to live a very lonesome and quite life. My success through the struggle is starting to show; there is a very dark void I still carry with me. There are a lot of adversisties that I challenge myself for the most part. I look forward to connecting with the most of you on this site, and am very happy to be of a new addition.
