Hi everyone,

I hadn't realised forums like this existed, but I just found it, and thought I'd join up. I suffer from depression, which was diagnosed just over 18 months ago, but I expect I've suffered for a much longer time than that. I've just started therapy, and the therapist is awesome (she was recommended to me by a friend who's been seeing her for over a decade - a pretty good sign she'll be good, I figured!).

Anyhow, that is me!

Sam

Hi and welcome. Glad you found us - I have to warn you though, there's something a little bit magical about this place...

Ooh - thanks for all that, folks! Tis very sweet.

Dollit - I do have one very specific question to ask you. In your signature you have "Save a squid - use a pencil." (You probably new that, there wasn't any need for me to tell you!) But I was just wondering what that means, or where it comes from, or something!

Well squids are where we get the colouring for sepia from - brown ink so if you use a pencil a squid doesn't have to die! >_<

Hmm, as a vegetarian maybe I should look into that. Of course, I don't write in brown very often.
