    Hi, My names well... Stacey. Age 29.

    I've been depressed and low for a very long time now, Over 3 years and still near "Rock Bottom" as they call it. I have the occasional suicidal thoughts every so often.

    My main cause of depression is from Compulsive Gambling - Very nasty if you don't stop it and let it get out of control like I did... And I lost everything I could of imagined and I'm left with nothing, no money, no job and no motivation. It isn't easy at all...

    Because of this I have no friends in the outside world... because they are all suckers basically and never treated me well at all.

    I've also have Aspergers Syndrome and systemlogically thought we could beat the system, but obviously failed.

    But I must FIGHT ON!!!

    nice meeting you and seeing you in chat this evening Stacey - hope to talk to you more. I may not have any real solutions for some of your problems but people to talk to can sometimes help keep things in perspective and possibly give some insights on ideas you have not thought of yet to help....

    Hi Stacey. I am glad to meet you. I think its great that you are here. This is a good community.

    You mentioned you have no friends in the outide world. I am wondering if there are any gamblers annynomous meetings in your area. If so, maybe you could meet people there who would be irl support system, in addition to youre coming here. And if not, maybe by joining gamblers annynomous online you might find some people near where you live who also participate online. I dont know, but it did come to mind. So I thought I would just mention it. I remember how much solidarity there was in al-anon when I was in that. And I used to see how much solidarity and support there were in the other meetings which happened in the same place. So much support, friendships and solidarity.

    Anyway, you found us. And thats great. I do not know how I would live without this community. It is that important to me.
