    Hey. My name is David and I'm 22 years old. I'm feeling extremely depressed lately. Suicide has crossed my mind many times, but I only live life once, so I want to do whatever it takes to experience true happiness before it's over.

    I've tried medication and therapy, but neither of them help solve the reasons I'm depressed. - I haven't been able to find a job in 4 years of constant searching. Bullied since before elementary school, up through high school. I have no friends outside of the internet, and even then I rarely get the social interaction I need.

    I decided to post here, hoping to find like-minded people who can offer me support, and I can to them. I don't know what else to say here, but I thought that's an okay introduction. I want to vent, but I thought It'd be more appropriate to save it for the "let it all out..." forum section.

    Welcome Dave.

    Like total eclipse said, there is only nice people here.

    Depression is hard to struggle with, I know. But it will be better.

    That's a good way to look at it. I myself find it a struggle each day to find reasons to stay alive, but even the fact that I'm looking has to mean something right? And I guess that's a good way to think..if you don't try to find happiness in your one shot at life, you don't really have any shot.
