    Hi everyone :) Im new to the forum so I thought I should introduce myself to you. Im Jenny, 24 from the North of England. Ive joined in an attempt to find some kind hearted and understanding people to talk to *fingers crossed*. I was diagnosed with depression last year and commenced on Citalopram which did help and (maybe stupidly) I also turned down the offer of counselling. At the age of 15 I was self harming - hitting my head against the wall, pulling my hair out and severely restricting my food and fluid intake. Im scared im going back that way :( xxx

    Hi Tink, welcome to the forum. Jeez it feels weird saying that as I myself have only just arrived this week.

    I am from N.E. England myself so if you ever want friend to talk through just let me know.

    I look forward to reading your posts.

    Hi Tinkerbell, you are in the right place, there is a lot of knowledge here, as with he others feel free to pm me if you need someone to talk to. I have been suicidal for 30 years, since I was 10. Stay safe, stay strong.
