My first day here. I am in a safe and somewhat stable state right now but I hope to receive kind and thoughtful support here as well as provide the same to others that are hurting, much like myself in the not too distant past. I am 55 y/o and I have had three prior attempts, the last one 18 months ago and a very seriously intended attempt at that. That one devastated my family and now everyone worries about me still. I had gotten better since that last attempt, got a new job in a new city, met a woman and engaged and finally felt I had licked my depression after 15 years of trying. Then the bottom fell out, I lost my job and my fiancee, had to move to my sister's home (I am thankful to her, but it's not exactly where I wanted to be at this stage of my life). Last month I felt the old isolation and depression setting in, so I checked myself into a PHP program. After 3 weeks I am back on track. I hope to share my experiences with others and learn more about myself. Thx, Glenn.
