    Hi to everyone at the Suicide Forum. I joined a little while ago but havn't been brave enough to post, up until now, as it is scary being new.

    I'm feeling very lonely today, deep down inside, even though I am not really alone as I have my partner and dog with me. I'm feeling very low and don't know what to do with myself. I feel the need to talk.

    Hey, I'm new too so I can understand how you're feeling about being scared to post. It isn't easy, but everyone seems very supportive so take your time and know that you aren't alone here. Well done for posting an introduction and I hope you're able to take another step when you're ready.

    I know how you feel you can be in a room full of people but yet feel alone...You are not alone and want to let you know that i'm thinking of you...If you want someone to chat with pm..:smile::rose:

    Awww - thank you, Nicki. I'm still feeling very alone today - it is a feeling right in the pit of my stomach.

    The trouble with this time of year is that my support groups at Mind are not on. I really need that support right now. I need to be with my friends at Mind who really understand me and give me support. Don't get me wrong, my partner (who is also in the Mental Health System) supports me 100% and I wouldn't be where I am without him. It is just sometimes you need your girl friends.
