hello friends. recently joined and have lurked a little, typically not really in all too grand a frame of mind though. have had a rough year and consider harming myself more frequently. i often feel alone when i'm surrounded and people exhaust me rapidly. for some reason i feel more at ease releasing myself through a screen. i like learning/listening to people and being approached. hopefully my strange sense of pride won't keep me from talking about my problems; there are a lot of them. i'm jack, nice to hear from any of you.
