    I haven't been here in awhile but I thought this one warranted a post. It has been exactly one year to the day since I last had a serious plan for attempting suicide. I feel like I am doing better than I was a year ago. I made some promises to myself and I feel I've done a fairly decent job at attempting to improve myself. I wanted to be more outgoing, come out of the closet as bisexual, and get some medication. I am now trying to be a little more outgoing and stepping out of my comfort zone a little bit. I am able to dance in public and be with my friends without too much social anxiety. As far as coming out of the closet goes this one hasn't exactly been easy. I have told my immediate family members and about half my friends. I am also out of the closet on facebook though not a single person has ever mentioned my interested in status. I am taking St. John's Wart as an anti-depressant. Overall I feel like I've made some improvements and I am a happier person that I was a year ago. I hope to see you all next year.

    That's really great to hear and I hope things just keep on getting better for you :) Also well done on coming out, and trust me, in a year or two when things settle you'll look back and it'll be one of the best things you ever did - it was something i certainly don't regret either.
    Take care, hope to hear some good news next year
