    Hi everyone I'm pretty bad at introductions but here goes. I'm 20 years old and live in Northern Ireland. I've had depression and anxiety since I was 16, at it's best it's just a problem I can ignore and at it's worst I can barely move because of it. I think about checking out of life often. Over the past 6 months it has somewhat intensified due to unemployment and growing distance between me and my friends. I've been feeling a little lonely so I figured I have nothing to lose by signing up.

    Thank you all for having me, lovely site you have here. ^^

    HI @Tilt :) Welcome to SF - it is really lovely to have you. If loneliness is an issue for you, hop into chat :) There are usually people in and around at this time of night (its a lot quieter in the mornings and early afternoon)

    I totally understand about anxiety and depression - sometimes it just makes everything so hard. Are you actively looking for work? What is creating the distance between you and your friends?

    Keep talking to us :)

    Hello there, I will be sure to check the chat out at some point!

    Yeah I'm looking for work. My last job SUCKED actually, so it was sort of a good thing it was only a temporary position. But I need routine in my life too to feel satisfied. As for the distance, just the usual things. Studies, work, gf/bf stuff. Sucks but sometimes this sorta stuff is out of control I guess.

    Thanks for your concern. :)

    Oh neat, I've been down South often. A very beautiful country, and the people are so hospitable. My only problem is that everything is so expensive in Dublin, haha. Nice to meet you.

    I find it hard to articulate my thoughts about suicide but the short version is I've just felt kinda miserable and useless, for what feels like forever now. I hate not having a reason to get up in the morning, I get up at 5pm. People have said I'm young and all, but I find it hard to deal with my current situation when it seems so many people have their life together.

    Thank you very much for the welcome.
