    My name is Elias and I registered here a just few hours ago.
    I made an (unsuccessful of course) attempt to take my own life about 1.5-2 years ago. A few months after the attempt, things seemed to be going better, but the last few months that sinking feeling of depression has returned and thoughts about suicide have been, once more/again, raging inside my mind almost every hour of every day. Since then I have been searching for help, and while I was surfing on the internet, I stumbled on this site and I thought it wouldn't be a bad idea if I registered here. I'm not going to go into my specific situation any deeper right now, I guess it would be best to keep that for later. I just want to say hello right now and introduce myself a bit. I'm 20 years old, live in Belgium and have been diagnosed with asperger syndrome. I study veterinary medecine, altough I already know I will not be able to keep up with this study. I have very few friends, but the ones that I do have are true to me, wich I appreciate enormously. I feel like I am alone in this world in a sense and I feel like I don't fit in anywhere. I think of myself as a failure, not only in the eyes of my family and friends but also in the eyes of myself. The things/hobby's I like to do most are jumping out of airplanes (go figure :unsure:), going for a walk, watching movies, animals, being in total nature and some other things I can't think of right now. I have severe sleeping problems :insomnia: (It's 04:24 where I am right now) and am very socially shy. Guess that's enough for now.
    Thanks for reading!
