    Hi everyone. I've been lurking around the forums and visiting the chatroom for the past week, so I figured it was time to introduce myself.

    I'm Tara, 24, from Mississippi. Today is exactly two years since one of my best friends killed himself. I won't go into much detail about it, but the reasoning was partially because of some things I said. I have terrible guilt that eats at me day after day, and it doesn't seem to dull with time. I really screwed up and it's hard to live with.

    I was depressed way before then, but lately it has been different. Where before I was depressed, I was still social. I could still have a good time, you know. These days, I've very withdrawn. I don't care to make friends. I don't smile anymore. I thought going back to school would change things, but it just makes the problems more apparent. I have a meal plan, but have not been to the cafeteria once. If I'm not in class, I'm in my room. People try to talk to me, but I shut them out. I feel as though there's a wall around me and even if I did talk to them, they wouldn't be able to hear a word I say. Plus, the only friend I have around here is about to move to Puerto Rico. We've been friends for about 10 or 11 years. I guess I depend on him too much, but he IS the only person I have to hang out or chat with.

    I used to be suicidal, but after my friend killed himself, suicide left a bad taste in my mouth and I swore I would never be able to do that. Lately, I've been thinking about it again. I'm so tired of so many things.

    This is a time in my life where things seem to be looking up, but inside that couldn't be further from the truth.

    Anyway, that's where I'm at in a nutshell. It's nice to meet you all.

    Thank you. I read over your intro and wanted to say that the government and politics seriously depress me as well.

    Thank you :smile:

    Thanks. People always say you shouldn't feel guilty, etc. But it's hard not to.
