    Hey there everyone. I'm mar. lets just call me that in case for some reason someone I know stumbles upon this. I am 20 (almost 21) and was diagnosed as cyclothymic at the age of 12 though I am more prone to think that I have BPD as well as severe anxiety: social, separation, and general. When I was 12 (turned 113 the week I was there) I was hospitalized for attempted suicide and found out that my doctor was overdosing me on my anti depression meds on top of the abuse I was using them for. I have battled with suicidal thoughts and attempts for years. I can root my mental instability back to my parents both genetically and from mental/physical abuse from ages 7-today. I am here for support and to find others who have similar issues as it is hard for me to talk to my friends about the way I feel. I generally am an upbeat person even if i'm yearning to die on the inside so I typically come off as very perky. I look forward to getting to know you all.

    XO,
    _mar
