    Hi! I am glad there are places like this online for people to get support in their struggles through life, and i feel it will really help me out on those "dark days".

    A little bit about myself i guess. I am 18 (almost 19) and lived through a rough childhood (I won't go into detail). As a result i suffer from PTSD, major depression and generalized anxiety disorder. Its tough, but i've been managing. I used to take loads of medication but have been unmedicated for almost a full year now. i start therapy in one week, and am looking forward to continuing in my recovery and self growth.

    Also, If anyone needs to vent or just needs someone to talk to, I'm here. :)
