New and looking for support

Not open for further replies.
Hello all
Well, the reason I joined is obvious.
I'm just looking for support, I don't want to burden my family or friends with my feelings I feel like it's unfair to them.
I opened up to a couple of friends about my feelings once and one friend told me I was faking it and the other was so supportive I felt guilty, like I was taking away from their life.
I just need a place to share, a place where I can be anonymous and not feel judged.
I've read through some posts and found that I could get that kind of support here.
And at some point I hope to be someone that can provide support for another that feels what I have felt.

And here is the place for support.
A lot of us have turfed up here rather than be a strain on our nearest and dearest, so you are in good company on that one. :smile:

You are fortunate to have found this forum. It has been so beneficial to me. I was, and often still am, at some very low points: feeling suicidal. Feel free to share here as it is helpful to you and to the one that reads your post. I have learned so much about myself and people in general from this forum and it has been just amazing. It is better than any talk therapy session I have ever been to. (Sounds weird, I know.)

I found this forum about a month ago and am doing just what you are hoping to do. I am Sharing my secrets, not feel judged, and have been able to respond to others with some sound advice. It makes me feel good to have the chance to do that, it gives my life some purpose. Purpose and meaning seem to be what keeps me going

Welcome and good luck,
