    Hello Everyone,

    I thought i would create a topic that allowed people to give me a little background into each person here. I do not wish to know about your current situation.

    I have a few questions i would like everyone to answer. I ask that everyone give an honest reply and have the freedom to over-power their current emotion's. I do not want you to be distracted by them in anyway (including anger, sadness, bitterness, hate or self-pity). No matter what people on this board think, i want to know the truth and even if it mean's digging deep into your heart to find it.


    Questions are as follows:

    1) Reason for picking your alias/username on the forum.

    4) List 3 positive point's about your character.
    5) List 5 skill's you have.
    6) Do you take full responsibility for your current position?
    7) Think back to before you felt depression/suicidal thoughts, tell me about one long term goal you had.
    8) If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
    9) Would you be willing to post a photo of yourself on this forum?

    1) It is my email account name, so I use it for every forum I go on. I don't mix my other forums and this one though. It comes from a couple of bands/songs I thought sounded cool, and it has '666' there because I was immature when I made the account and thought it was more....uh, "cool".

    2) I hail from Melbourne, Australia. 17 years old. Male.

    3) I have trouble trusting others. I am not very approachable. I have extremely misanthropic tendencies.

    4) I'm loyal to my friends. I'm rarely violent towards other people. I'm deeply compassionate (if you get to know me).

    5) I'm good at music...thats about it. More as I think of them (put me on the spot)

    6) Full responsibility? No. Partial responsibility? Yes.

    7) I wished to be a family man rather than have lots of PhD's or an 8 figure salary or whatever. Finding a good woman and having a couple of kids was the thing that I felt was going to give me greatest satisfaction and joy.

    8) I would have earned enough money to be comfortable. I'm absolutely flat broke as it is, and I'm 18 in three fucking weeks. My parents have said that the instant I'm not studying at school, and am 18, thats it - rent, or out.

    9) I would. But I don't know how long it would be up there, I'd be quite uncomfortable. I'd much prefer people request an image via PM, which I would cheerfully send to them.

    1. Biblical quote from Christ's directive that we "do unto the least of these what we would do unto Him", also a reminder that humility is a good character trait.

    2. Ohio. 55. female.

    3. Too easily frustrated. Too self-deprecating. Too demanding of self (and others, to some degree, tho not as much as demanding of self).

    4. Hard-working. Altruistic. Dependable, as much as possible depending on circumstances.

    5. Writing. Naturally empathetic. Inventive. Can (and do) make do with very little. Stubborn/tenacious - a good skill as well as a bad trait.

    6. Oh God, yes, my situation (not counting genetic tendancy toward depression) is completely of my own making.:mad:

    7. Long term goal... to have a career I enjoyed and that would support me decently... a goal I've not yet realized - my own damn fault.:mad:

    8. One thing I'd change about myself... can't pick just one - too many things about myself I'd like to change/undo/redo.

    9. No picture, for rules and cause I don't want my picture posted publicly - privacy and security reasons, not to mention can't stand my appearance.:mad:

    that's my info

    Thanks Ab!:smile: This is a really shitty day for me - what is it about November that all of us seem to be falling off our precarious perch into self-hatred and self-destruction?? I feel like hell today and it seems like all my friends here have lost the will to live! I can't stand it cause I can't do a damn thing but beg them to stay. And who am I anyway, that anyone would listen to me??:sad: I care so much and it hurts, it hurts me to feel everyone else's pain.:sad:

    Thanks for the hug - it's needed especially today, and cyber-hugs mean you can't get my germs!:wink:

    love,

    Syd Guest

    1) Reason for picking your alias/username on the forum.

    My alias is named after Syd Barrett. I grew up listening to PF as a kid, and Piper @ Gates of Dawn is one of my favorite albums. I love a lot of 60s music in general, and it reminds me of good times with my closest friends who enjoyed the music as well.

    2) Where are you from? What age are you? What sex are you?

    I'm in MD, just north of DC. (not by choice, I'd love to move.) I'm a 23 yr. old male who loves Baltimore, but is not too fond of DC.

    3) List 3 negative points about your character.

    - I'm highly sensitive.

    - I can come across as cynical and emotionally withdrawn.

    - I'm currently suffering from social anxiety, insomnia, and depression.

    4) List 3 positive points about your character.


    - I'm easily inspired and have many academic interests.

    - I'm easy to get along with and have good control of anger.

    - I believe I have a good overall sense of morality, and enjoy helping others.

    5) List 5 skills you have.

    - Music composition & piano/ keyboard ability.

    - Creative writing (fiction, poetry, etc.)

    - Moderation (helping those in dispute reach agreements)

    - Ability to drive well under intoxication (weird but true)

    - Critical thinking

    6) Do you take full responsibility for your current position?

    Absolutely.

    7) Think back to before you felt depression/suicidal thoughts, tell me about one long term goal you had.

    I could say being in the olympics, but that was a rather unreasonable goal from the days of my youth. The main goal I always had in mind was a career in writing fiction and poetry, though other writing fields would be acceptable.

    8) If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

    I would choose to have the ability to love myself and others unconditionally, the way that I could while under the influence of MDMA. I don't want to fear others.

    9) Would you be willing to post a photo of yourself on this forum?

    I may share some privately, though they would be poor quality as I currently lack a digital camera or scanner.
