    Hay everyone. I came across this website while hopelessly searching for help on the internet today. I am a college student that has struggled with depression, extreme anxiety & disordered eating since I was about 14. I am too ashamed to talk to friends or family about how lonely & desperate I feel. I have tried for many years to try & pull myself out of this all alone, but it is only now that I realize that I need help from more people like myself that know what it's like to hurt this badly. *HUGS*

    hi galoot... welcome to SF... eclipse said some good stuff to you already.. we know depression, anxiety and eating disorders pretty well around here.. many members who know the subject intimately.. agree with eclipse if these conditions you mentioned here have you almost paralyzed and stuck then probably you should talk to a professional for yourself.. glad to have you with us now.. tc, Jim

    :hug: Welcome to the forum. This is a great place where you can talk and no one judges you, since everyone knows what it's like to feel blah.
