    Hello everyone at SF,

    My name is Chiere and I'm a new member here. I have struggled with suicidal thoughts and feelings for the past several years and continue to battle them. I also have a problem with self-injury which I've had since I was very young (about 8). I hope to find some friends here to talk to and seek support from I I feel down so hopefully I won't have any suicidal thoughts.

    Thanks for reading and see you around.

    Hi Chiere. I've been dealing with suicidal thoughts since about eight as well and self-harm since I was 13. While I can't really say you wont have any suicidal thoughts while talking with us, I can say that 99.9% of us are here to help with those thoughts (because you know there's always that .1% that's not up to par) and can be here for you when you need us. Just shoot a friend request and/or a PM.

    Thank you all for your kind replies. I've been looking around this site, seeing what all the different forums have to offer, and have seen several which I think should help me.

    But I'm still scared, as there is one incident which still bothers me, yet I don't feel that I can talk about it in the appropriate sub-forum because that forum is meant for victims, not...the perpetrators. I know it was a horrendous thing to have done, but I still feel like I need to talk about it and maybe finally forgive myself for it. But maybe I should keep that to myself....

    Sorry for the rambling...I'm just having a bad day today.
