    I'm 20 years old, I just joined this forum today, I guess I started to realize how it will be beneficial for me to interact with people with the same problems I have, and read what others have to say and how they may have over come it. I believe I'm bi-polar in terms of my depression, there are days when I'm happy, but most days I'm upset, but ultimately I've just never been happy through out a bit of my child hood years and especially my teenage years. Hope to get to know some people on the forum, and I hope eventually I can feel more uplifted in my life sometime..

    to sadeyes- I haven't spoken to one, but I've been thinking that I should. But I feel a little nervous doing it for various reasons. But hopefully I'll get around and see what I can do.

    to suicider628- Nice to meet a fellow a canadian on the forum haha, I live in the toronto area, and that's great to hear that you recovered for the most part, do you have any tips that helped you through?

    and thank you kitty and lightbeam for the welcome :)

    f$$ the site log me out before it let me post. Toronto also.

    very short version:

    -take care of simple things (sleep well, eat well, excecise, do well in school)
    -think about present only, nothing can change the past
    -support urself, ppl often think themselves as worthless and useless, the one who is making u depress is urself, ppl might say stuff to you, but they don't really have the time to think about you.
    -socialize as much as possible, online or offline, don't matter, fill those social needs

    can't think of anything else atm, why don't u ask things instead.

    Hey my name is Jenn and I'm new too. I'm also from Canada but not Ontario, I'm from BC :) This forum seems like it will be a good place to talk, have searched for a LONG time (years) online trying to find a board that seemed like it would have nice people on it, does anyone know how long this one has been here? Well anyway I am already feeling a bit better just being a member on here :)
