    Hi, I'm Anastasia. I'm in college right now, about to be entering my sophomore year. It's summer, so I'm at my family's home for the next three months, and away from my school friends and my girlfriend. I guess I just needed to reach out to someone since I don't really have anyone at home to talk to.

    In total, I think I've been dealing with depression/self-harm/mental disorders for about 5 years now. It started in eighth grade, but no one (including myself) took it seriously enough until last year. Things just got out of control, and I ended up in a mental hospital for attempting suicide. I don't want this to repeat itself, so I decided to use some of the resources out there, like this forum.

    :) Welcome to the forum.

    Im sorry to hear that you've been enduring these feelings, but I have to say, good on you for taking a proactive approach to it :) I hope this place can offer you some sort of place for you to talk and work through what's causing you pain.

    :)
