    Welcome, have a good look around. I'm a silver struggler and this forum is pretty easy to navigate once you get used to it.

    you are doing great. Welcome to this website and to the web. Glad you are here :) Learning computers does get easier. When I was first learning I told a dell tech that I was thinking of throwing the computer out the window. Well, okay my first learning experience was on an operating system callled Windows ME. It was a mean villin :D

    New to computers? As someone who has been using the Internet since 1996, all I can say is GET OUT BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE! I wish I had never started. Just think of how good I could've been at anything had I not wasted all this time on the computer and applied myself to other things; I might even have a friend to go outside and hangout with. But instead, I use my computer as a vent because I have no other outlets and it gets me in trouble. I'm 23 years old, when I post things people don't like, and they can't do anything about it legally, they tell on me to my parents.

    Now I'm in an addiction I can't break. Why do I subject myself to the thoughts and opinions of a billion other people? Surely I'm bound to disagree with more than I would agree with. I don't know, but still, I do it everyday and everyday I find something on the Internet that makes me upset.

    But that being said... welcome to SF.

    I've never been on a site for this before. I need to talk to someone who understands the thoughts and desires of suicide. I feel lost.
