    So Far, You've Saved My Life

    I only found this site like a week ago now... but it couldn't have been a more perfect time. I came online to find somewhere to post my story... for the first and last time. I was going to commit suicide that night. I made my plan, had my story thought out. My way of letting...

    So Grateful But....

    I love this site. It has given me a place to release my sadness, pain and sorrow. I have made friends and opened my very soul to this place. I love that I can say what's on my mind, express my feelings and lay my heart out on the table and know that I am accepted as I am. I've...

    Thank You Ep

    Especially at times like this, when all seems bleak and empty, when life seems cruel, when no one understands, when people I care for and love break my heart over and over again, when life seems not to have anymore meaning... I read the stories and gain strength from them, I...

    This Site

    I'm not as sad as I used to be. I'm not so lonely either. I do get sad from time to time, but not like it was before. I see couples and still I cry, because I remember all the times. I laugh to, because I remember all the times. I see the pain that others' feel and wonder at my...

    Before I came here I felt lost

    and unhappy, I felt like no one cares about how I feel and that I had no body. But then I found this and I feel pretty good and I'm not worried as I was

    Anonymous Honesty Is Still Honesty

    I think the biggest problem human kind is dealing with right now is that it is lying to itself, about a great many things.  We lie about who we are, what we want, what we do...  We all pretty much lie about everything, and then we lie about the fact that we lie!  How many...

    It's time to say goodbye.

    For now, maybe not forever. I'm so grateful for the support people gave me on this site, and how it felt like the one place I could be totally honest about my depression sometimes. It's time for me to go though. I've been trying to be stronger and better, and I need to remove...

    Three Amazing Friends...

    I am grateful for the 3 amazing friends I became very close with. My first friend in EP was this amazing woman that I quickly felt extreamly comfortable with. She listens and never judges, just a warm caring big hearted person. I have had the pleasure to have met her twice now...

    Personal Journal

     Even thought I haven't connected with much people yet, I really do like ep. When I share stories, it gives me a sort of release. I never did well with writing in a diary everyday, but this seems to take the place, and makes me happy. Wow that sounded cheezy. Oh well.

    I am absolutely grateful for this site. I've met people who've taught me so much. And I am so thankful. This site helped me discover myself in a way I never have before. I'm able to write my feelings and I know that no one will discriminate. I absolutely love this site.
