    Hi all!
    New to the forum, and well, talking to people in general.
    My name is Amanda. I'm 20, i guess on the verge of 21.
    And the honest truth is, I need help.

    Thank you so much for the welcoming. I guess I thought I wouldn't get any. Maybe because I figured that I would be perceived as just another...kid...who doesn't know what she is talking about. Maybe. Even if I came here knowing that this was a forum intended to help people. There's always a bit of aprehension when one signs up for these things.

    Honestly, I watched a program on tv about how women and men were trying to find love and marriage with inmates on Death Row (Mostly by online interaction). It just clicked that maybe if someone could find love in the weirdest of places, maybe I could find some solice... comfort... whatever it is that i'm looking for. And here, after a quick google search, I am.

    :) It's good that you are here honey.

    Hopefully you can find the comfort you are looking for.

    Most people here are in pain, but every one here is an individual, and every ones problems differ from others.

    Try not to put yourself down, you are a very strong person, but you do appear to have low selfesteem. If you google 'Ways to improve self esteem' a lot of things come up and maybe you could try and do things to help yourself see the good in you.

    Just a thought :)

    Take care

    Welcome to the forum, Amanda. I don't think you're just a "kid".. I think you are someone that has problems and needs and deserves just as much support as anyone else here at the forum. If you would like a friend or would ever like to talk you are always welcome to PM me anytime, also if you have MSN or Yahoo messenger and would like to add me, feel free to get my messenger ID's out of my profile. :hug: :hug:

    If it helps, I'm the same age as you, and one of the mods here (I won't point out which, but if you find out, you'll be surpirsed) is 16. Believe me when I say that age is no barrier when it comes to being taken seriously here :hug:
