hi i'm jess, i just signed up and am figuring out how to use the site. just hoping to find some comfort here i guess, i don't really have any friends, not ones i can talk to about important stuff anyway. i find it hard to talk to new people, so i'm hoping this will be easier. fingers crossed you'll like me and won't think i'm a loser like everybody else does. i have had disordered eating and been self harming for about 10 years now. they sort of go hand in hand with me. i've been thinking about suicide more seriously recently but i do want help, somehow. i'm sort of stuck, and i'm just not sure how to change things. anyway, i just thought i'd introduce myself, and maybe i'll pop up somewhere on the forum when i've figured things out. thanks for taking me in.
