    I'm Kimberly and I'm here to help others, offer advice, support, etc. Heck, I might even end up needing support from others - I've been struggling on and off with depression for years now and recently hit a very, very low point that frightened me, but I'm doing a lot better.

    I'm a proud ginger of 18 years old and have a severely geeky love of Doctor Who. What makes the depression so much worse for me is that I am, innately, a very optimistic, happy-go-lucky, often sassy person - depression tends to take away my entire identity.

    I struggle with addiction as well - namely, the meds prescribed to me for my back. It certainly hasn't helped my depression at all and it's a constant struggle, every day.

    Today has been a 'good day' for me, I feel like I've come out of a fog of overwhelming, zombie-esque apathy, which is why I searched for a forum where I could help others who struggle like I do and befriend kindred souls. : )

    I'm so happy to be a part of this forum now and I'm excited to meet its members, so here is a bit (too much) about me. Hi everyone!

    Oh, thank you, Kate! It's been my username for so many things because it's like a reminder of who I am - depression can't take away the reminders. : ) I'm sorry you're feeling lonely.

    And thank you everyone for welcoming me! It's highly appreciated.
