After weeks of being here I finally have the motivation to post. I had a multi page story of my life ready to go but after clicking post, the page wouldnt load...
It involves years of physical abuse, being teased and bashed at school (not just by students), my  thoughts and attempts... I really dont have the energy to re write it again sorry. I am single and always have been, not ugly and always nice.
Why am I here? Not even the closest of my "friends" know anything about who I really am. Even when I thought one was close, he threw a curve ball and didnt even come close. I guess there is a shimmer of hope that believes I might just get throuth this if I find a place to tell the truth. So over the next few months I will be sharing some of thr stories of my past and who i am today. Hopefully something good might arise.

Seeking professional help? Cant... My job requires me to be extremely focused on what im doing (yes lives can be at stake) Practicly anything other htan pain killers will put me out of the job.

Well happy new year... =/

I'm so sorry your post did not load...I have written long tortuous posts only to forget to hit submit-lol!!

Not to make light of your situation...I am glad you decided to let us know you are here. I guess you know we are a bunch of good people fighting a terrible challege as you are. We do understand and you are not alone in your struggle.

Could you see a medical doctor for an anti-depressant? I am not sure how your job affects treatment? Anti-depressants help alot of us TO focus and normalize a little. Depression can wreak havoc on concentration, meds and therapy can help to direct our thoughts a little better.

Anyway, I have a house full of teenage girls getting ready to go out for a holiday party, so cannot stay on long. Just wanted to welcome you and encourage you to write some more about yourself. I look forward to getting to know you better. We are here and we do understand-I hope that helps a little

I hope the New Year brings better times for you and for all of us

Take care
Maggie

Hi Aloneinthedark,

I can't talk long. Almost midnight. But I am here. Know that you aren't alone. We all care about you.

I am sorry I had to edit your post, but we can't discuss suicide or self harm on the forum. I will post to you more, but I got to go. It is a new year. I hope that yours is a good one.

Hugs, Karen

I am back Alone,

I haven't posted to you since last year. lol...

I am not making light of your situation either, but I just had to say that. You are among friends here. We do care.

I am lucky, my psychiatrists sees people on Saturdays. I have had a few appointments on that day. As Maggie says, maybe you can get in to see your regular doctor and get some help. Or maybe you can find somebody who practices after hours. In any case I am going to post a couple of sites that might help you.

I am glad that you felt comfortable enough to join us. It sounds like you have had a hard way in life. A lot of us have. I hope that we can help you some. It is work though, I must say. But you have support here.

I hope that your new year starts out good.

Take care.

Hugs, Karen
