    Well hi! I'm Ziba and I'm new here (obviously). I've been trying of what to say about myself but I still don't really know so bear with me! I've been suicidal since 2010 and life hasn't really given me a break, instead of getting any better everything has seemed to have gotten worse. I keep telling myself "well, this really is rock bottom" but I somehow keep digging lmao. I guess the best way to explain it is for around 3 years I've been "passively" suicidal, like just feeling like I wanna die but not really doing much about it, y'know? Only in the past 2 years things got from bad to worse, and this year I ended up isolating myself from everyone apart from immediate family, and even with them (specifically my mom) I can't share how I'm really feeling because they usually say they can't deal with my problems and I have to sort them out myself, and with no friends now, im really lonely and I having no place to talk about how I feel really sucks! So I ended up finding this forum the other night and here I am.

    I don't really know what else to say, there's a lot of stuff thats happened to make me feel like this but it's all probably too heavy to say when I'm just introducing myself. Anyway, hi!

    Ziba! What a grouse (great) name! I would offer you some bubbles, but that feature is not working right now, so you will have to contend with my avatar for the time being (Bubbles will thank you as well, for admiring her!)
    Glad you decided to stop and join, although I am sorry for the reasons why you felt you had to search online and sign up in the first place. At least here on SF, you can be guaranteed a calming and relaxing atmosphere where you can kick off your shoes (metophorically speaking, do not want you hurting anyone in the line of fire) and speak casually, since all the members and staff here know just what it is like in the World.
    I would offer you a hug as well, but I do not hugs, sorry! The llast person I hugged turned out to be a giraffe disguised as a person... Or was that a dream? I dunno, but put me off hugging for quite some time!

    You are welcome and can - should - expect more of the same from all the other members you will eventually encounter during your stay with us here. Also remember that the chat room is your friend, especially if you find yourself in that vulnerable position in the middle of the night and no one to talk to (who has not been there before?) there should always be someone on-line in the chat, be it a member or humble moderator so take advantage of it, even if you are in high spirits, always friendly and easy to talk to. :)

    And do not mind Lilly Dale (Petal), she was named after a brand of poultry products :p (but really a sweet and fun lass to talk to!)
