    Hi. I'm A. I joined this site because, while I've struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts almost constantly my whole life, I feel alone and desperate lately. I moved to a new city for work in March, and while my career is offering me more than I ever expected out of it or out of life in general, I can't get out of the deep depression (worse than the normal "low hum" of suicidal thoughts) I've been in. I have become totally isolated here. I don't have a close friend here to speak to and I am afraid of burdening friends out of state with negativity.

    Tonight's especially bad, so I looked for help or support or something. I hope I find it here, and can maybe help others who are struggling as well.

    hi Dressreheresalrag. I do hope you find the support here. I can tell that this is the only website I have tried that I feel truly safe and comfortable at. And believe me, I have tried many for depression, anxiety .... So I personally think you had a stroke of luck when you found this community.

    The management here is very kind. The people are suppportive and caring. More important, you can be yourself here. No one has to pretend. No one has to put on a mask. None of us are strangers to suffering isolation and pain. Either currently or in the past. So welcome here. I hope you find comfort company and community here. Its many people's lifeline. I do not know where I would be without this community.
