    Hello everyone. I'm here cause I've been feeling really down and am really having trouble finding or even getting the motivation to find some kind of support group were people will, at least to a certain degree, understand what it is I'm going through. I've struggled with severe social anxiety and major depression for my entire life, and drug/alcohol addiction for nearly a decade now. I feel like I've accomplished nothing, and have just wasted my life. Drugs and alcohol have been a crutch, but it seems at this point they have diminishing returns. Suicidal ideation is something I've also struggled with and lately it's been getting worse.

    Anyway, don't want to go on and on about myself. I just wanted to say what's up and write a brief intro about my struggles, so that maybe for the next 5 minutes I can stop thinking about suicide or drinking myself into oblivion. Hope everyone else is getting something from this forum.
