    Hey all, I just found this forum when googling for a place to talk about suicidal thoughts. I guess I'll say more in the my story section later. It can be a lot to type out.

    It's weird how hard it can be to talk to people about this stuff face-to-face, even with therapists. But it sounds like the people here really get it.

    I tend to lurk on forums, but I'll try to come out of my shell a bit.

    Thank you for having me.

    Hello B-squared. Just wanted to say Hi! Welcome to SF. If you stay connected on this forum you will find many different perspectives on one subject-life threatening depression and anxiety. I think that you will benefit greatly by staying in touch and expressing yourself. Good luck and take care-LT

    Hi and welcome. This is a friendly and understanding crowd here. Because we all know what it is like to want to end things. Our reasons may be different, but the hurt is the same. Glad you found us.
