It took a few hours of searching last night and a redirection from another type of support site, but finally made it somewhere I hope'll help for those bad nights. Guess I should introduce myself? 17 years old, female, wannabe derby doll. Last year I got kicked out of a boarding school my friends all go to (for purely academic reasons. failed one college level math class) and I guess that's when most of this started. Depression runs in my family, pretty mild-moderate with a few severe that are unfortunately all closely related to me. I guess technically I have social anxiety with a little sprinkle of depression thrown in there, just enough for those fun nights of loss of interest in life. I guess I just want someone to talk to 24/7 who gets this, instead of a therapist once a week and people who are too close to the problem to really see it.
