    Yer I use to spend alot of time on this forum, helped me get through the tough times.
    Its been quite a long time and I have no suicidal feelings no more :)
    Though have recently found out I have social anxiety, which actually explains why I was so depressed (still depressed but toughing it through)
    Just thought id come back and share a lil story about myself.

    Thanks for coming back and sharing your story. Could you share with us what allowed you to have a change of heart? Many people have social anxiety but this can be overcome by the realization that YOU are just as important as anyone else, even if others appear to have better looks, more talent, a nicer job, a more loving family, etc. We are all unique in our gifts. No one is without something to contribute to our planet. If everyone was exactly the same, we'd all be clones of each other. That's not how we were meant to be. If you believe that this is true, you will be able to be proud of who you are, and your anxiety will lessen. But you have to believe it for it to help you. Good luck to you in all your endeavors!

    PeaceGirl is absolutely right. Don't be afraid to embarrass yourself. You can't succeed unless you try.
