    Hi. I'm not too good on introductions.
    you can call me mandarine (i like that fruit). I'm 20 years old and i've been suffering from depression since I was 12. I think that compared to then i've gotten better. I tried my first suicide attempt at that age and ever since i've been trying to figure out my depression(Dysthymia) and what things makes me feel better.

    I'm the reason why i'm studying to become a clinical psychologist. I might even go for the full 12 years and become a psychiatrist, but college is really hard. At first I wanted to be a vet, but i'm happy with what i've chosen.

    So please take of care me. By that I mean if you see me post a suicide plan, any reply, even just a smilie, will help me a lot. I hope my time here will help me in some way:smile:.

    Hi Mandarine, welcome to SF! :)
    Everyone is very friendly here, so I'm sure you'll find the support you need.
    It may be hard studying, but it's a good goal to work towards, and will be worth it in the end.

  9. Welcome to the forum! :heart:
    I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Everyone here is so nice. :]
    This site provides me with so much support as well as a much-needed distraction from whatever is bothering me at the time. And when I can help other people, that makes me feel better too. :smile:

    Good luck with college. :] I think you would make a great psychiatrist because you know how it feels to be depressed, and I think that is very helpful when it comes to helping other who feel that way.
