    3 years ago, I sat on this forum day in and day out. If you didn't find me on here, you'd find me in my room listeing to sad music, researching methods or just living life recklessly because I didn't care for life. In March 2007, an attempt left me in hospital. I almost lost my life. At the time, I was angry, jealous and beyond depressed. Looking back, I'm thanking God for a miracle that to this day seems surreal...I'm alive, breathing and in less than a month, I'm getting married to an amazing man.

    I just signed onto this forum for the first time in almost a year...and I found that a lot of the same people are still posting...and sadly, still hurting. It's hard to know that some are still in this low season of their lives. But it's important to know that is it just that...A SEASON. I guess I just wnated to come past and let those people know that they are not forgotten, they are not worthless and they are far from insignificant. And me coming back and searching specifically for your names is direct proof of that.

    I'm not going to give a life lesson but what I did learn was that acceptance is whats needed. Some things don't go your way - accept that. Some of us dont have functional families - accept that. Some of us have had terrible pasts - accept that and make a better future. Easy to say, hard to do...but not impossible.

    May god bless you all!

    Thanks guys! I'm no different to any of you, you know? Each of you can get up, dust urselves off to move past whatever rut ur in at the moment.

    And it's not like it's a fairytale. I'm happy, very happy...but there are hard days, days when work is a chore, days when I'd rather stay in bed and certainly days where Uni is the last thing I want to do. But I figured that I don't want there to be hurt in the world and I wasn't gonna change that for my bedroom.

    I actually never thought I'd get married...I thought I'd be that independent women who just gets on with it cause 'men aren't worth it' haha very sex and the city of me right?!

    Yepppppp, now I'm just babbling...awkwaaaaaard. Take care lovlies!
