Hi. I joined last week. I am a 23 year old female from Florida(USA). I don't know when, where, or why I began to have such low self-esteem. I was painfully shy. I think my suicidal tendencies began when I was 10 or 11. I always held myself to a higher standard than I could live up to...still do a lot of times. Anyway, I have made great progress in the last five years. Found a good guy, married him...got a dog, then another one... But I still have struggles with depression and anger issues. So, I'm on here to find friends and share things that have helped me through the tough times. I will probably be known on here as the "religious freak," but well, that's what I believe helps me--God.
