    Hi...I'm new here. I joined because no one in my life seems to understand me or have any idea how to help me. I'm feeling incredibly lonely and hopeless. I've been in therapy for most of my life, been through the whole spectrum of psych meds, and lost count of how many times I've been hospitalized. I'm in an outpatient program now, but it's not helping--my depression is getting worse and worse, and I have nothing to hold onto anymore. I've lost all hope of things getting better.

    Well, probably not the most cheerful introduction ever, but at least it's honest. I'm not sane enough anymore to keep pretending to be okay.

    Kennings, welcome to SF! :hug: Sometimes sanity is most evident when we stop trying to put up a mask that everything is OK - we aren't using our energies to pretend but to heal ourselves. Hope that's the case for you. :)
