I haven't been on here for a very long time, and I'd like to just update

I've been a lot better since my last post, and I'm happier. I'm not going to say that my life is perfect now, I still have bad days, but they are fewer. I met someone over a writing website, and we're amazing friends now. She's helping me a lot, and she tells me that I'm helping her too. She was struggling through bringing herself back up after a long period of sexual abuse, and tells me that my reassurance is what helps her to continue. 

I'd like to thank people who give advice here in these forums, they are always very helpful and willing to listen. 

A few years ago I was planning my own suicide, and now I'm planning a trip to visit Spain with my girlfriend.

Sorry to take up your time, but I just wanted you to know that there is always hope.

That great to hear @rudeandginger. Don't apologise for taking up time! We love to hear how people are going and its awesome that you're doing great. Showing other people who come on here that it does get better (that trip to Spain sounds AMAZING) does a lot for them.

I hope you enjoy your trip to Spain. Smiley Happy
