Hey all

i posted on here a couple of weeks back asking quite simply for a friend and after a couple of weeks it has done me so much good.
my name is ben and im 20 years of age and have been depressed for 2 years now, it cost me everything from my degree, my lovely girlfriend and so much more.
after hitting the lowest of low points around christmas, i searched online for a forum hoping to start friendships with others who understand what it is really like to be depressed...i did me so much good!
i was overwhelmed by the help and kindness of strangers... and i want to just say without sounding weird or creepy tht if there is ne1 out there hu is in need of a friend, i am here, just pm me any time and ul get a reply

all the best to all you guys

Ben
