Hi. My name's Leighann & I'm 15. I joined this forum because I need/want emotional support. Hopefully it will help me to finally stop with self harming myself. I've tried it many times before, but I had to try over&over again. Recently I've been diagnosed with Dysthymia. It scares me. They want me on medication, but I worry about the side effects. I feel scared and alone. No one understands me.
