    I joined this site about 2 years ago when shit was getting kind of bad for me. I'm not going to go into it but I had isolated myself physically and emotionally from those who cared for me which made it that much harder to deal with life when devastating things began to happen.
    Fortunately I reached out online as well in RL and things began to get better. I got into the program of my choice in the school of my choice and also got a job. Everything was cool for a bit. When things began getting bad again during the school year I inadvertently reached out to my mom and I was sent to the mental health assessment centre at my school. They decided I needed a check up as well as an appointment with a psychiatrist and a psychologist. The talking doc was a jerk but he recommended a book called 'Mind over Mood' which has been extremely useful in helping me get my negative thoughts in check. The drug doc was very nice and put me on wellbutrin, which helped level me out. My blood work also noted that I had low levels of most vitamins but notably vitamin D and Iron. Since I've been taking my vitamins everyday I've been feeling a lot happier and more energized.
    Since I've been at school I've been able to socialize on a regular basis and I met a really great girl who I now consider to be one of my best friends. She's also a bit messed up (isn't everybody?) so I feel comfortable telling her about the craziness that sometimes kicks in because I know she can relate.

    So yeah...good job, good friends, great program, good mental and physical health! Okay, the last too aren't totally up to standard, but I'm working on it. But yeah, in short: yay! :stars:

    Also, SF got revamped, very nice! xox
