    Hi everyone,

    I'm Sylvia, I'm 22 and from BC Canada. I'm a nursing student currently but really struggling right now. I've been cutting for ten years, and have depression, anxiety, and borderline personality disorder.
    I have a huge history of abuse, physical and verbal by my parents (mostly my dad), and I've been raped twice since high school. I have a lot of trouble fitting in with classmates and I pretty much think they all hate me. I've always had social issues and I just feel like, what is so horrible about me? Anyways, my life has basically just been one big ball of abuse and being told I'm worthless and stupid and useless and fat and ugly.
    I'm sinking badly right now, and thought about going to the hospital tonight.
    Anyways, I look forward to getting to know you guys.

    :welcome: to the forum. If you think you need to go to the hospital to stay safe, then please do so. Have you had any type of counseling to help you deal with the abuse issues? For some it makes a great deal of difference. I hope we can be another avenue of support for you. :hug:

    Thanks everyone, it is awesome finding such kind souls :hug:

    I used to be on a similar forum, but there was big cliques and everyone was fighting and some people there really hurt me, so I left many years ago, and have been looking for some online support somewhere new ever since.
