    I joined a few days ago but I've been too nervous to post really.

    I'm a very shy and quiet person generally and when I'm also new anywhere I find it very difficult.

    I've been dealing with depression, anxiety and self harm for half my life and so many times things get on top of me. Feelings like these are hard to discuss with friends or family and you are often seen as selfish or attention seeking. I guess I just wanted a place I could come and talk about such things and be understood.

    It feels bad that I should keep it from my real life but I'm not sure what else to do.

    And I've kept things secret to my friends (and family, but they're the main cause for my problems) for pretty much my whole life to seem normal.

    Sorry for the late replies but...

    Thank you. :smile:

    It hard doing that. I have told my family sometimes but it never goes well. I have some friends also that I've tried to speak to but its hard for people to understand. That's why I thought I should keep it separate.

    Hi! Welcome to you too. I'm glad its helping you. It is a relief to know that when I need to get really difficult things off my chest I will have a place to go and a place to talk about my darkest emotions. That can be so hard out there in the real world.

    Thank you. I think I've been a bit quiet around the help section but honestly just knowing this place is here if I need it is a big relief. I'm probably still a bit guilty of keeping things all bottled up though. :unsure:
