    Well there is no point in joining a forum and not introducing myself. That would be quite the opposite of what I'm looking for.

    Well for starters I've been diagnosed with depression since I was 9, Im 25 now. I recently went through a crisis in my life where i actually attempted my life twice in a 24 hour period. I sought help and went to a crisis prevention center. I went to a rehab for a few months where I was diagnosed with psychosis with no further studies because I had to leave because of a severe skin infection which nearly took my foot. I've been sober now for over 5 months, one day at a time. I cannot talk to other people about my feelings because i feel most people in my life have no perspective of what I'm going through. I feel most at home with people that are like me, so I'm hoping this will be a great place to discuss my thoughts with other people. Thanks for allowing me to join SF and hopefully I can help out just as much with my experiences
