    New here so just wanted to say hi. I'm going through kind of a lot atm, and need all the support I can get. I find it easier to talk to people online, but I sometimes tend to write a lot, so apologies if I go on at times. I've had problems with depression most of my life, and this year events happened which suggested I have a dissociation identity disorder. It's a weird situation for me, being someone who's studied so much psychology and neuroscience, and also given that I'd never really thought about the fact that I "hear voices." I've recently started therapy and it's proving hard. My life's something of a mess after a divorce and a long-term relationship break up, that and being unemployed.

    I hope I can also contribute to others here. I'm not just here for myself; I've been told I'm a good listener and I would like to think I'm open minded. How much support I can give and when varies with my moods, but I guess we all find that. I do like to give back though, and I look forward to (hopefully) being a part of the community.

    Best wishes to you all.

    hi Mephisto. Glad you are here. I personally think this is a great website. Of course many of us have problems with depression. And many, if not most other conditions as well. I think it is a caring community. A great place to be honest about how we are feeling. Knowing that no one will ridicule or condemn for it.

    Hi Mephisto, welcome to SF. Don't worry about writing too much, you should see how much I write at times. I wonder if I ever shut up :lol: I'm sorry to hear you're going through a hard time, but I'm sure that you will find people here you can relate to. I hope that you will keep posting, and we will be here to help.
