New and nervous

Hi, I'm new and very unsure.

I was on another suicide forum that helped me quite a bit but recently things have been occurring on there that made me feel like an outsider again, and I've felt like that all my life. so I started looking for a new safe haven and found here. I'm now just very nervous a similar thing might happen.

A little bit about me, I'm 22 and have been suffering from OCD, depression, major panic attacks, 2 extreme phobias and PTSD. I've suffered from as young as I can remember and don't know any other way of life. I've never been good with social situations so thought is try the forum for support.

Feel a little daunted by the size of this forum :unsure:

Oh, and I'm not to great at putting things into words lol

Welcome! You did just fine and get an A in my book for putting that post into words! If you have any questions about how this forum works or need help with getting around here, don't hesitate to ask! I bet you know the drill though, having been on another forum like this. ;)

:welcome:

Thank you, I'm taking it slow getting into things this time, Im barely getting any spare time to get online. We are moving in about a month and juggling that and our daughter is more than a full time job. Only silver lining to being so busy is it distract me away from the depression somewhat.

Hello,
I was afraid of feeling like an outsider too, but people here are very friendly and nice, and this is pretty much the only place I haven't felt that.
I hope it works for you as well
Welcome :)
