    Hi, I've been around for a while now just reading, thought it was time to actually post. :unsure: Silly but it's kinda scary even when I've seen how welcoming you guys are.

    I'll make this quick for now - my name's Katie, I'm 23, I'm studying atm - not going so good:sad:. Depression took me by surprise just over a year ago, I've had times when I've felt a bit better since then but overall just keep getting worse and worse. Frustrating!:mad:

    The last couple of months have been really horrible. Thinking about suicide all the time, clinging on to a tiny shred of hope that things will get better eventually and pretending to everyone I'm fine. Don't know if it's worth it any more.

    Anyway I'll say thanks cos this place has already helped. And sorry if I don't post much - I be shy:hiding:

    Hi there, welcome to SF :)

    No need to apologise if you don't post much, or at all in fact - you go at your own pace :)

    We're all here for you to talk to, so post whenever you feel like, and they'll nearly always be a quick response.

    Take care,
    Joe :)
