Default I have been with SAUK for 8 years on and off

I have been with SAUK for 8 years on and off. I have bouts of depression which means i find it difficult to be consistant on here. The good news is that i am able to help myself better now and am getting better support than ever before. Its taken a long time but there is light at the end of the tunnel

Can anyone beat 8 years on here?

I have been posting on SAUK on and off for 8 and 1/2 years. Time goes so quickly!

I have only just recently started taking serious CBT. I had done it twice before but couldn't stick with it. I still have a lot of problems but I guess I have made significant progress since I first joined the site.

I think I have been here for at least 10 years. Its not something I'm particularly proud of as its just somewhere to go as my SA has never truly left and I use a PC everyday anyway so its just a click of a button away. It interests me that some of the people who used to post here regularly and then seemingly recover but never come back at all as if it opens up a whole host of bad memories. Perhaps its a reminder of how bad they felt at the time. I wonder if they really cared about some of the other people here they used to speak to or were just passing the time of day.

Around 15 years here, on and off and not bothered really about it, I accepted years ago I will be SA for life but am able to learn coping strategies plus try to have fun now and then.

I don't post so much on here nowadays.

I had a long break from here starting from I think around about 2006. Then briefly came back 2012, but not regularly. Too much going on and I wasn't ready to interact much with people even on here.
Pre 2006 I can't recall how long I was here for. I really can't recall when I joined in truth. 2003, 2004 ? maybe.

I've no idea how long if you omit the gaps. If you don't omit the gaps I don't want to think about it!

I have to say it was strange coming back, I recognised barely anyone. Though I don't know what I expected tbh.

Im the same as you really but Im hopeless at remembering and not very good at connecting on here, so it also felt a bit strange when I came back after a 2-3 year gap. I have met some new people, but havent made any friends really. Glad to be back and there are some really inspiring people on here which does give me some hope.
I also know that I have improved with time, now I cope better with my SA.
