    Hello to all,

    My name is Darryl, I'm 19, currently living in Ontario Canada. I've felt depressed for just over 2 years, and recently began suffering from suicidal thoughts. They began when my father started drinking heavily and got violent, starting many fights within my family. 2 years went by, all throughout I had attempted to tell my mom how I had felt, and she simply said "its not our fault, your just making it up for attention and so you can be lazy and coast through life." They never understood, so this past new years eve they threatened to kick me out for the last time, because this time I actually left.

    I've been living in my own apartment since April. I've lost touch with friends, I hardly speak to my family, and on top of that I'm stuck with no post-secondary education, and I'm caught in a dead-end steady night shift janitor job, 11pm-7am monday to friday. Talk about solitude. At first, solitude was ok, as it gave be time to think...but now I find every night more unusual for myself, as I have become so alone I often talk aloud to myself, or in the mirror.

    Thank you all very much for your welcome here. :smile:

    :welcome: to the forum. Reconnect with friends. Just because you have a night job doesn't mean everything has to change. My son worked nights and attended colege during the day. He would go home after class and sleep and get up and go to work. Depression can rob you of so many things. Do your best to fight it. Seek out help and support. Don't isolate yourself. :hug:

    I'm extremely glad to hear of all of these responses, and the support is truly...astounding. Thank you all very much.

    I have in fact just got in touch with an old friend, however most of my other friends have moved away, and have moved on to different stages in life. I'm remaining positive, knowing that through meeting one person its possible to meet many, many others.
