    I just signed up here at SF. I'm a little surprised I did; I've been in a much better place lately than in the past. A little history:

    Last year was very rough for me, for no particular reason. I was constantly upset, frequently crying, and felt quite alone all of the time. It was a struggle to get up and do anything at all. Sometimes while trying to work, I would just sit still in silence for an hour without moving at all. While I'm not sure I ever seriously considered suicide, it was a topic I thought about a lot. I was eventually diagnosed with depression and put on medication, but even that didn't help at first--I don't think I really felt its effects for 6+ months.

    FORTUNATELY, I am finally happy again for the first time I can remember in years.

    So again, I'm not entirely sure why I joined. Maybe to show that things can get better. Maybe in case I ever fall back and need some support. But one way or another, I'm glad to be here! Also, I'm super-excited you have these :pokeball: :pokeball: cause they're great.

    When I joined SF, I wasn't feeling that bad, either. Hopefully you will continue to feel better.
