    Hi everyone.

    I'm Lauren. I'm 23 and from the Midlands in the UK.

    I have been depressed since 15. Struggled with Anorexia aged 15-20, now struggle with EDNOS. I have recently been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. I also suffer with mild OCD and Anxiety. I self harm and am currently frequently suicidal.

    After battling with the NHS since the age of 16, nearly getting sectioned last November and 2 overdoses (Sept '11 & Jan '12) I got referred to a Psychologist. I've seen her twice now and think she might actually do me some good. Sometimes, that is... when i'm not convinced i'll be better off dead.

    (Everything was fairly stable, until last June when i got married and then found out he was cheating on me. Thats when the BPD came out, self harm, suicidal thoughts and attempts. I'm still undecided on what to do with my relationship).

    Anyway, i'll shut up now. Any questions feel free to ask :)
