• Apologies for the issue with a bizarre redirect on the site earlier today. There was a large server update and an error in an IP address had the traffic routing wrongly. No hacking or anything nefarious and nothing to worry about. Sorry for any stress/anxiety caused. Very best wishes - SF Admin

Hi everyone. I'm Helena, I'm 23, and I'm chronically mentally ill (anxiety/psychotic depression/OCD/ADHD). Although things are objectively fine and have been my entire life, I'm constantly feeling like I'm treading water. I'm on meds. I'm getting treatment. I just don't know how to handle the lingering inky blue in my brain that stains everything I touch. Everything I do feels fraudulent.

Am I allowed to vent on an intro post like this? Either way, nice to meet you. I wish it were under better circumstances.

Don't worry about it, it is more than fine. You'll always have a place to share how you're feeling on this forum, and a place to find any advice or support you need.

I hope you can feel a bit better soon. Sending hugs *brohug.

No problem! ;) no trouble at all, head cold! :) when you (really) get right down to it... "mental illness," is just a disease of the brain; which, like the 'Heart!' (is just an organ). . . And yet, we've been conditioned in modern society to somehow feel worse about ourselves for this. But we really shouldn't, if thought of in this way! : )_ glad to have you hear & take care! Merry Christmas,, if you celevrate (it?) :^) -mrb! (;
