Seems odd to be saying "hello"

    Mildly amusing that I should be introducing myself, or being welcomed, when it's fairly obvious instead of saying hello... I'd much prefer be saying goodbye. Alas, the mind wanders.

    So, unless you haven't gathered by me signing up here and the awkward satirical humor attempts - I'm not really, okay. Whatever "okay" is. I'm alarmingly aware of how few options I have left, and I've always been at peace with the idea of death, so... here I am, the final throw of the dice. I've always lucked out before when the crows have come calling, so lets dance once more.

    I'll keep my reasons, feelings and history to a separate discussion though. This was, much like life itself, a light-hearted start gone horribly astray.

    Seriously, I'll stop trying to be funny now... Help me.

    Pleasure to make your acquaintance, I hope

    I hope you don't check out just yet.
    I really enjoy the way you write. Do you do it in any form other than strange "hello" posts on suicide forums?

    Thanks for the welcome guys!

    Shadow, I occasionally attempt to write something slightly more creative and purposeful. I usually throw in the towel pretty quickly... I seem to loose motivation really quickly with anything I touch. I've been attempting to write a novel for about a year now. I've got 2 chapters done, and I keep resisting the urge to just bin the thing and start again.

    So at this rate, by 2033 I'll probably be able to say "yes! I've even written a novel!"

    It's a fantasy novel, so hopefully you'd find it interesting should I ever finish it. As I said I'm only 2 chapters into the first draft so it's a long way off yet.

    Thought I'd throw it up in the Creative Writing section, feel free to check it out.

    Welcome Alsadan. Glad you found found us, but at the same time I wish you didn't need us. I understand and appreciate your humor. I also use it to try and hide my true feelings. But you will find that this group is very supportive and non-judgmental. We offer no magical cures. But we will listen and offer suggestions when we have them.

    Hey, I like your sense of humour. Especially given the forum focus. I'm new too . Haven't got the energy to be humorous right now but you never know, with someone funny to talk to I might come out of myself a bit.
