    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, so if not I apologize.

    Around 2006-2008 I was severely depressed and suicidal. I had survived an attempt in 06. After this I started posting here and was met with great support and encouragement. Nowadays I am doing a lot better. I recently returned to the site to reflect on those dark times. It put things into perspective to compare how I'm feeling now compared to how I was then.

    I not only recieved great support, but I hope I myself helped some people along the way. The compassion I felt here on this forum was totally unexpected as the internet is full of trolls who are just jerks due to anonymity. I never came across a single person here who was like that.

    So I thank you all, this community might as well have saved my life.

    I am new here. I am so glad you are doing better. It gives hope to the rest of us to know that people can get better. I am glad these people were able to help you through those dark times. I hope your days stay bright and grow ever brighter.
