I decided to join this forum because at the moment, I think I just need some type of interaction. Sadly, it's on this pc instead of a friend or relative. I have always been a depressed person, and have slowly turned into a very isolated person who finely chooses who his friends are, and can barely maintain a social tolerance toward most people, let alone become more social. I will not likely say anything you have not all read before, but I ask for your understanding in that I am aware we all have problems and we all hurt, but today, pain and hurt is all I feel; and regret if my posts are a bit selfish for awhile. My girlfriend and I broke up today, and while I am not on the verge of suicide, my depression in general has had such a major impact on my life that I sometimes worry that it will eventually happen. In short, I suppose it would be most honest to say that I need some type of interaction, and to make some new friends who more understand what I feel than the average person. Anyway, I apologize if this writing is a bit jumpy, but my mind is cluttered and I'm doing all I can not to cry. Im so sick of feeling this way, and I know many of you know exactly what that feels like. So with that said; Pleasure to meet you all.
