    Hey there. I'm glad I found this forum..

    I'm 48, female, single, I live in North Carolina, I'm and recently out of the hospital after three consecutive hospitalizations. The first two were attempts and the third was for severe depression and suicidal thoughts. I'm hoping to not end up back in the psych ward and I guess I'm hoping not to end up dead anytime soon...hopefully this will be a place to visit during the dark times. I'll tell you more about me later once I've looked around a bit.

    Thanks, scaryforest. Well, the change in my meds has really helped a lot. Other than that, the suicide hotline in the US, meditation, more structure during the day, and chocolate. ;-)

    (I've been to the UK twice, but almost 30 years ago...Derbyshire then London.)
