Well this is my first try at something like this, the reason being I cut myself for the first time tonight, which I never thought I'd do honestly. I feel like my suicidal thoughts will soon become more than just thoughts. I'm a (just turned) 17 year old girl. I guess I'll keep it brief, Ive been depressed for exactly a year now. I've changed into the worst version of myself; anxious, angry, shy, insecure, miserable, procrastinator, eating disorder.. you name it. Oh and obviously quite negative lol.. Um, my mothers manic depressed and has attempted suicide which has been really hard, shes constantly up and down. I feel like I'm ruining my own life (e.g good friendships, good grades, etc) and terrified of being a 30 year old in the same spot. Anyway, I'd really like to talk to people in the same kinda places, and I'd like to help anyone who needs to just talk or whatever :courage: So hello everyone!
