Hi, Everyone Looking For New Friends ....


Recommended Posts

HI everyone. I am new as new can be here! Up late because i can't sleep... what else is new!

Really looking for some new friends and some people i can relate and talk to.

Tell me about yourself and I'll share some tid-bits of myself with you!

Oh and add me as your friend because i'd love to get to know some new chatters.

My name is Lisa, I am 20... And You? :nod:

Ps. I have been reading some of the other intro posts and didn't want to start off by telling my whole life story and being depressed, but if we must go there we must ha ha! I have dealt with A LOT so don't count me out if you need someone to listen to you! (even though i tend to talk to much ha ha!)

Hi, Welcome to Depression Forums!

I'm fairly new here too... and up late, probably for similar reasons as you. I've suffered from depression and anxiety

for 16 or so years (I'm 29), but I think that I'm getting better at managing it and Depression Forums has helped me with that as well.

I have two cats, one is fat and lazy and one is wild and crazy. I'm still not sure if I like either one though, lol.

Other than that I'm going to school and trying to get my life back on track...

Hi, and welcome!

I am 38 years old, and I suffer from severe OCD, panic disorder, and depression.

I am finally on a combo of medications that have brought me some relief from my debilitating symptoms.

I'm married, and I have a teenage daughter. I also have two sweet cats. They are my furbabies.

I hope you find Depression Forums helpful. There are a lot of really nice supportive people here.

Take care.

Hi Lisa! Just joined yesterday and I can tell that this place can be a "home away from home". I am 36 and have suffered from depression and anxiety for most of my life. Go ahead and tell that whole life story if you want...there are plenty of people here (including me) who will be happy to listen!

I have a dog! he is adorable! had him ever since my parents died, he is 17 i think, quite old but still as adorable as ever.

i am starting school too! i am so glad someone else is going to school to get things hopefully back together, i thought i was such a "loser" seeing as all my friends are like 3 years into college already!

wow, a horse! how interesting! all i have is a dog ha ha. i am totally in love with animals though and when i move out i am going to adopt like 1200000 lol. I have things to be depressed about but they really aren't recent, just lots of trama as a child, which now effects everything it seems.

thanks for the message :)

i usually need to be a depressed mood to just spew out everything. i tend to overthink everything so if i get caught on that it could be hours or days until i stop!

but one day i will tell my story ha ha! in short though, both my parents were killed. my mom when i was 4 in a house fire, my dad never there -- on drug overdose, live with my grandparents, abused by my grandfather as a child. uncle committed suicide 10 days before my 16th birthday, i was VERY close to him. never really had a non abusive love life (until now :) ) and my grandmother currently has Alzheimers. That is the short verison with not hardly everything included but you get the picture!

I'm new here and I could use some friends. And I am a dog person, so there's that. My family had a dog, but she died last spring a few months before I moved out. I wanna get one of my own though, when I can afford it. I'm thinking about a long-haired daschund or like a mix of some kind.

i am starting school too! i am so glad someone else is going to school to get things hopefully back together, i thought i was such a "loser" seeing as all my friends are like 3 years into college already!

Don't worry about that, I'm 25 and I'm only just graduating this year. I'm living on my own, just trying desperately to finish my undergrad thesis without my depression and anxiety getting in the way.

Well they say what doesn't **** you makes you stronger right? I think without all the stuff i have experienced i wouldn't have a lot of the tools, met some of the people or really gotten to know myself. So in a way i am "thankful". It is nice to meet you :) You can PM me anytime if you would like! I am on meds and go to therapy every tuesday, not sure if i added that above ha ha

Hi,

My name is Paul, I have been suffering from depression for 13 years and fighting it for the last 18 months, I have been married for 6 years and I have three cats...one of which is a pure white Tom I adopted after finding him all messed up in my garden and there were no records of owners, he is HUGE for a cat though and makes next doors Jack Russell dogs look tiny but he's soft as sponge and very affectionate.....well with me anyway, my wife is his butler haha

I am on citalopram for my depression and nothing for my (mild) Adhd , I am studying IT from home at the age of 32 and think that as I still have 30-40 years left of work why should there be a 'too late' to start a new career path!

Hi there! I am 56 years old and only recently admitted that I needed to get onto meds for my depression and anxiety which I've had all my life. I also have an ED(eating disorder) that I've finally started facing. So, I'm a bit of a mess!

I have 3 kitties that are big and healthy. One is a Ragdoll and is very neurotic. But, I love him just the same! My kitties are my children!
