Hi there everyone!
I'm Chrissy, 19 years old. I currently live in Germany, but I'm moving to England in a few weeks as I'm going to study media and communication in Birmingham.
I've been a member of this site for about a month, but it felt a little bit awkward to think about myself as a "Veteran", as I'm still an annoying little girl inside.
But here I am now.
Hi all. I don't know if I have introduced myself here .... things are a bit blurry at times. So, please forgive me if I already have. If I haven't ... here goes.
I go by either Coralie or Kahlia1981. I'm from Townsvile (QLD) Australia ... although I might be moving to BrisVegas (Brisbane) next year to go to a different university. I'm 26 at the moment and currently studying Information Technology. I want to be a computer programmer. I recently lost my job due to discrimination and ended up with a settlement so that I wouldn't take the organisation to court .... a decision that I'm now regretting. I've recently been having electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) which saved my life and gave me hope that life is worth living. I've been SI'ing for quite some time - 15 years I think now, but have managed to slow it down quite a bit.
Anyway *waves* that's me.
She shouts, she screams, she smashes your dreams . . .
Would you mind if I killed you? Would you mind if I tried to?
'Cause you have turned into my worst enemy,
You carry hate that I don't feel: It's over now WHAT HAVE YOU DONE

I've been a member of RYL since Ruin and have been posting on and off since. I'm just having a look again after a very long hiatus, some people may know me under another alias but I changed it when I signed up to the new site for personal reasons.
I'm 22 and began self-injuring when I was about 14. I've recently got more ill again because my husband has left me and so decided to come and have a poke around here again.
hey, im jenni, i used to lurk around the old vets, but stopped coming on here when ryl changed, but now am back. am 20, 21 in october, and ye. have been s/hing since i was 13, and am in recovery from bulimia. have been in psych hosp since 2004 and now am in a therapeutic community.
hi, i'm yanna. i've just joined ryl, and at age 29 (self-harmer since 15) i guess i count as a veteran. i'm another one in the uk. my main issues at the moment are depression and ocd, but other things like eating and going out flare up as big problems, then die down at other times - like now, pleasantly.
blackbat452; i *love* the bat in your sig. it'd make a great tattoo.
hi all i tend to hang around in vet support but thought i would pop in and say hi!
my name is laura or L J suffer from depression, anxiety, BPD, PTSD, have food issues and have self harmed since i was 14 i am now 25 (goodness that list makes me look pretty messed up!)
i am a mum of 3 little ones my husband left about a year ago but we are currently thinking about trying again
well thats me look forward to getting to know you all a bit more :)
Jenni how are you finding the theraputic community? i was in the henderson in 2001 just wondered how you were getting on?
My name is Alyssa and I feel weird rolling around in the Vets forum. However....I feel even weirder in some of the main ones. I'm 20 years old (SI since I was 15). I feel a bit young to be in vets, but it'll be nice being in a slower environment (not slow in a bad way but...:P). I just keep remembering folks I knew on V2 and such and figured they're probably in here. So...here I am. I'm a full time student. I'm recently married and I'm a housewife. I love it. Good times. I'm studying for a degree in Business Admin...I think that'll qualify me to work at Taco Bell :P
So, that's me :)
