    I'm new here.

    I'm not quite sure why I'm here. I've tried depression forums before, and they usually only make me feel worse. People either judge me or reinforce my belief that nobody gives a [explitive] about me. Maybe I'm just a glutton for punishment. Or maybe I'm running out of options, and this is a cry for help. I've looked for help before, with no success. I don't really expect this time to be any different. I guess somewhere deep down there is a part of me that doesn't want to commit suicide, a part of me that insists on trying every viable alternative before throwing in the cosmic towel. Most likely it's just a knee-jerk reaction based on some primitive survival instinct.

    Anyway, whatever the reason, here I am, in spite of my better judgment. The naive optimist in me insists that there is always hope for a better future, that I can some day be happy, though the realist in me knows better...

    Thanks to the moderators for finally approving this. Even if nobody replies. It's good to know that my voice was allowed to be heard, even if no one cares to listen.

    1 view and 0 replies. Awesome. About what I expected.
    It's nice to know that in a world of 7 billion people, not one of them gives a crap about me.

    Oh well. It was nice not knowing you all.

    Thanks everyone.

    Sorry for being so dramatic. When I posted the original message, I was feeling absolutely hopeless and on the verge of doing something drastic. Luckily (or perhaps unluckily) I didn't, and now I'm back to feeling less miserable, more apathetic.

    Still trying to determine whether my failure to follow through with suicide is due to foolish optimism or just pure cowardice. Either way, I'm absolutely positive that I will eventually get over both of these hurdles if my life doesn't change.
