    One year ago today, I stumbled onto this website after googling feelings of suicide. I never thought I would find myself at such a low point. I felt like such a waste. I was beyond depressed; struggling through every day, sobbing through every night, feeling hopeless, ugly, hated and alone. I didn't think anything could help me. But SF did. I found a place on SF where I could share my story without judgement. I could speak my feelings on my terms. And I found people who could understand what I was going through. Tiny victories started to happen and my thoughts about myself started to change. The place I am today is miles from where I was one year ago today and SF has been a big part of that. Thank you for creating this safe place where people who are hurting can find support and hope. You saved me.
    Extra thank yous and hugs to @Kira @Cody0991 @may71 @WatchingPlanesFlyBy @DrownedFishOnFire @Innocent Forever @shania @Petal

    To say that I am proud of you is an understatement :) You have worked your butt off to make these changes in your life! The only way was up and you grabbed it with both hands!! I know these things take time but you're my inspiration to know that in 6 months or 12 months I too can look back and see how far I've come! Thank you for showing everyone that it can be done :) MASSIVE HUGS! OXOX
