Thread: greetings

  1. #1

    Default greetings

    I have had many psychological issues in my early years of life to a point where I plotted to kill myself. I have been diagnosed with depression but I did not need a diagnoses because I was sad my whole life ever since I was 4. I was bullied for being overweight every day at school and beaten every day by my abusive father when he would lash out his anger towards me and my sister. He is gone now. But I still feel empty on the inside. My recent years in counselling helped me regain my will to live and I have been devoting my life to volunteering at the rehab clinic I was in for therapy. This purpose for helping others go through what I am going through is the one thing that makes my life still worthwhile.

    I have no hopes for being in this community, I just want to discover more to life because my life still feels incomplete.

    May this be an introduction.

    Allen

    Hi Allen. What you've gone through sounds very painful.

    welcome. sounds like one hell of a rough ride. let your will burn brighter. if you stick around, you probably will face hostility here, too, but you're liable to make some friends, too.

    welcome to the forum allen =). I used to live life looking for a purpose as well, never found it, but the best advice I can give to you is:

    Looking for a purpose in life is great.. but until you do, enjoy the process! Our time is limited, there's only so much we can do with only 24 hours in a day! and people are lucky you are there to help them go through tough times.

    Cheers!

    I don't post much, but don't worry, it's not really much of a community, but more like a dysfunctional family stuck in an ever-lasting family reunion.

    Welcome alienwire,
    The good news is, once you meet some of the characters at this place, you'll instantly feel much better about yourself and your situation.

    In fact, most new members that are depressed and thinking about suicide usually experience a 78% improvement in self-esteem, and those suicidal thoughts are replaced with giving advice to other members to instead kill themselves.

    Until then, I'd recommend ice cream, chocolate or other comfort foods.

    Enjoy your stay!
