    Sorry for even bothering everyone here with my problems. Did not know it was mostly a young forum. Everyone here is way too young to stress about anything. You guys have plenty of time to change your life. Good luck, I'm out of this site. Sorry for your time once again.

    You're not bothering anyone here with your problems - and we have members of all ages, why don't you stick around for a while and get to know us, talk to us about what's going on with you and why you feel this way?

    Take care x

    Welcome to the forum. Sorry that you feel it is not a helpful place for you.. personally i don't think it has to do with age. And just because someone is young, it doesn't mean their pain is any less real or worthy. Can I ask how old you are? I am 28.. and there are many other members who are in their 30s - 60s. We have a subforum entitled 'Antiquitie's Forum' which is solely for members who are aged 30+ - maybe that would be helpful for you?

    I am 34. I just didn't want this to seem like I'm some old checking out young peoples sites. I read a couple of posts and it look a little too young for me.

    I'm 28, so not all that much younger than you. If you would feel more comfortable talking to people who are a bit older maybe you would find the Antiquities Forum more helpful, as Jenny said. Whatever their ages, though, the people here are wonderfully supportive, and I hope that you do choose to stick around and talk. PM me any time if you need anything.

    I actually came across many people in their 30's and 40s here..suicide is not just for teenagers and neither is emotions..

    Age does not limit the emotion we each feel, no matter at what age.

    I think you should stay here because whether or not young people or old, we all are here for some of the same reasons..we all feel down. Some of us are trying to help..:)

    I think you should stay:)

    I'm 50. Emotional problems, anxiety, depression and thoughts of suicide aren't confined to the younger set. Hang around, your thoughts and friendship would be appreciated here.:biggrin:

    You are never too old when it is help you are seeking. While it does seem as if their are many more young people here, you would be amazed at the maturity of some of them. What we have been through seems to age you beyond your years sometimes. I have found great insight among the younger generation here. We all have one thing in common. We have issues that need to be dealt with and we are all searching for something. I hope you choose to stay and give us all a chance. The old and young alike. (I am one of the antiquities here, lol) I hope to see you around. :hug:

    Age doesn't matter. As far as i'm concerned, there could be a person who is a 105 years old posting on this forum, and I wouldn't judge them or look at them any less.
