    My name is Katie, and i just found this place on google and it seems just what i need right now, so i thought id come and introduce myself.

    Im 20, currently at University. I have tried to commit suicide twice, and have been a self harmer for 8 years.

    Ive had different problems over the years with family and abuse and all that shit. (sorry, but there is no other word really!) and until i moved across the country i have had psych support for years. I have cyclothymia, PTSD, OCD and i have had 2 episodes of Anorexia, but i am currently in a period of Binge eating disorder, so im much bigger.

    Sorry to moan, it would just be great to have a place to feel i can talk without judgement.
