Just a thread about you guys :) - January 30th 2011, 02:38 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I just realised I've never really said what this site truly means to me, I thought I'd make this thread

I remember I was 14 and never felt like I belonged anywhere, I was quiet in school and people took advantage of that and bullied me. I had a group of friends who grew out of me, they weren't the same people anymore. The bullying also got worse, I considered suicide at a few points in my life. I remember wanting to take an overdose in the school toilets, write a suicide note saying exactly who bullied me (I wanted them to suffer) Luckily it never went that far.

I did make a group of friends but we all got drunk a LOT, it was like my escape from reality. I had nobody to really talk about how I was feeling.

I wanted to find a teen support forum online, I found a few but all the ones I joined made me feel like more an outsider. I didn't like the staff members very much, the way the site was run and I didn't find the members very helpful. I had almost given up finding a forum which could help.

One day I decided to give finding another site a try, I just google searched "teen help forum" and this popped up. I lurked about for a while to see if I had signed up before, I thought to myself if I had then the layout was probably different. I decided to make a thread. I loved the members here almost straight away everyone seemed to friendly and caring. I kept posting here.

Then one day I was on the phone to my friend and signed into TH without really thinking and a PM popped up*. It was from the Talent Committee saying I should apply to be a Buddy, I actually told my friend I'd phone him back as I was so shocked The idea that a site I had been looking for for so long actually wanted me to be part of staff made me so happy.

I still love you guys and hope I'll be a member here for a very long time <3333

Ah, my heart smiles. (: What a lovely story! So glad you took our "You've Been Spotted!" PM as a "YAY" moment instead of a "OMG I'M BEING FOLLOWED" moment. (Let me just tell you how many replies I've received saying "I thought I was being followed and in trouble!" or something). Sweet.

I'm happy that this site has made a positive impact on your life! Thanks for sharing.

Shit, I saw this thread with Triggering: Suicide and damn near had a heart attack. Don't scare me like that.

Sweet story, though.

Ceilidh thanks for sharing your story. <3

I don't know you, but have always wanted to get to know you. You seem like a very strong person. I like seeing you around, because you are so friendly. I'm glad that TH has had a good impact on you, as I'm sure you've had a good impact on so many THers.

Aw, what a lovely story! I love this site. I agree that the members are far nicer here than on any other forum I've ever joined. Hence why I've stuck around! I don't think I've ever stayed at a forum this long.

You've come a long way! Proud of you! Thanks for sharing!

This is a nice thread.
I feel the same way as you. I've never felt more at home than I do here. It's a wonderful community, and, I have to say, one of the best support forums I've found. It took me a while to realise how good this site was, but then I joined staff, and I've had absolutely no regrets since.
I do get a little apprehensive when I get PMs too, especially with things like 'A Message From the Performance Committee'.


but when the morning breaks
we will see the sun.

This is a wonderful story. Thank you so much for sharing. And I do agree, the people here on TH have been some of the nicest that I've known anywhere. Group hug!
