welcome. Im glad you found this place, there are some really wonderful people here and so much support to be had......
I know the feeling of thinking your life doesnt count, but it does, you are a very special person, and tho things seem bad, they can get better somehow.
i also self harm, so if you ever need someone to talk to, Im around

Everyone here is very supportive and the forums are usually very active with quick responses. I'm new two but feel very comfortable here.

Hi Shades of Grey, and welcome to Beating the Beast.

I hope we can offer you the friendship and support you need. Depression can be a very lonely illness, but there are lots of nice people here who I like very much.

I look forward to getting to know you.

Hi shadesofgrey

Welcome to our new home,there lots of people to talk to and soon there will be far more moving over from the old board. I have been a member for a while. You like me will find that there are many caring people here who really care about you and want to help you cope with this illness. It helps so very much to talk to someone about it and it really helps.

(((((shades of grey)))))

the great thinga bout BtB is that we all know exactly what you're going through. the situations are different, the circumstances change from one person to the next, but we've all been there- we've all seen what it does and just how much that bloody beast can grab hold when it wants to.
We're always here for chats and company, and the great hing is, we're all on different time zones so matter what itme day or night you'll usually find someone around!!

I hope we can help and talk away to your hearts content.

Em xx

hi Suz...and welcome...I know I'm a bit late with this but as everyone has said...we are a lovely friendly community and whatever you post is ok as long as it is in the relevant folder and trigger warned if theres a chance it may trigger someone.

also...there are so many of us here that at some point there will generally be someone who can empathize with what you are going through/have been through...

once the folders are all open again people will repost their intros and you will get to know us all better...and in time you will hopefully feel 'at home' here and less alone.

Shades of grey-

You sound oh so sad at the moment.

I hope things start back on the upswing.
