    Hi everyone, Im new here. Im not good at putting my thoughts into the correct words, but I want to try. I wont go into details, because I do not want to be too graphic or accidentally trigger anyone. I have had issues with self injury and depression for more than half my life. Last month I had a forced police escort to the hospital for a psych eval. I cant explain it better right now, cause it still makes me very upset. I have been diagnosed with anxiety disorders and OCD. I feel like a 24 year old joke that everyone loves to hurt. I hate that every day is a constant fight and that I mean nothing.

    Hi there & welcome to SF.

    I know it can be hard trying to put your feelings into words but you've made your 1st post & that's one hurdle out of the way. Sometimes it's a lot easier to write things down too.

    I'm sorry to hear about your experience with the hospital/police. Maybe when you're feeling up to it you could post a little more about it? There are a few boards here that you could post in & if you feel it may be triggering just say so in the title, then members can choose whether to read your post or not.

    I hope you find us of some benefit, you'll probably find that many members have some experience of what you're going through.

    Take care, :hug:, Claire xx

    I am new here too, and I know what you mean about it being hard to find what to say. For me it feels very strange to try to put my feelings into words and I am afriad that even if I did that people would judge me or not beleive what I am saying. I too have trouble with self injury and find that people are very misunderstanding on the topic. I know that there are a lot of people out there that do it for attention and it is unfortunate to be grouped with them when attention isnt what you want at all. I am sorry that you are having a hard time, I hope that this Forum is a help to you.
