    Hello everyone,
    I found this site yesterday whilst feeling a bit down and needing a bit of anonymous support - you know how it is, you just can't tell "real" people exactly how bad you're feeling. So it's been nice to have a browse around the site and realise how many people out there feel the same way I do.

    Quick background - I'm 29, mum to 2 girls aged 1 and 3. Have suffered depression a couple of times in the past since adolescence, but worse after birth of baby 2. Ended up taking 2 overdoses in 1 week back in April and was hospitalised from then until just 2 weeks ago. Struggling to cope with the real world again, although outworldly most people think I'm doing fine. On numerous different pills but none seem to be helping much and some are actually causing more problems than they're worth. At the moment I have vague plans for self harm and suicide, but trying to keep putting them off for another few days for my girls sake.

    SO not such a quick intro after all.
