    Hi everyone, I'm Thalia - I'm new and I thought I'd better introduce myself! I'm a little nervous about posting because I've never talked about my issues before, but I'm really glad I've found this forum...

    To give a bit of background: I'm 19, and I just started university in the UK. I've had various problems all my life: strange eating habits, social phobia, panic attacks, insomnia, general depression - the list goes on. Over the last year or so my thoughts have become increasingly suicidal, and I'm pretty scared about it. I've never seen a psychiatrist or a doctor about this, and I've kept my problems hidden from my friends and family (even my parents have no idea). Hopefully it'll be a relief to finally talk openly about my feelings.

    It's nice to meet you all! :smile:

    welcome to sf thalia.
    it does help to talk about problems. i bottle everything up myself, and it never helps.
    have you aproached a doctor about your problems? or have you not said anything at all? doctors can help so maybe give it a try if things get really bad
    in the mean time were all here for you :hug: and hope you enjoy and find help here :hug:
