    Hello everyone. I'm a 19 year old female from the Midwest who has been dealing with depression, suicidal thoughts and loneliness for 6 or 7 years now, along with self-injury. It's late here and I'm too scatter-brained to share the details of my story at the moment, but for right now I would like to say hello.

    Hi GirlAtlas,

    Welcome :) I just joined this forum a few days ago and it's helping me tremendously. I find that it's a great balance between giving and receiving support and I love it. I too manage depression and anxiety since I can remember, maybe 40 years now. I started to self-harm when I was 34 years old and I can proudly say that it's been about 5 months since the last time I did it. It took me 14 years to find a new way to deal with my overwhelming anxiety, it was always a last-resort type of release, but it's risky at my age that maybe the wounds won't heal. I don't want to hurt myself anymore. Anyway, just to say I can relate to what you feel right now. I hope that you spend some time daily on this forum, it's almost like keeping a journal. The anonymity is so helpful and I haven't come across one bad response yet. I feel safe here and I think you will too.
