    Hello my name is Tatiana, and I'm 14 years old born in the US. I joined this site a while ago, but I haven't really been able to explore and chat but once. Soo extremely long story short, I was diagnosed with depression and 13 and OCD just a few months ago. At first I had assumed I was just being an ungrateful teenager, but when I went to see a therapist, she said it was something different. Since then, I have been battling with keeping this secret from the public and feeling like a freak on the inside. Lately I've been feeling like I'm hanging by a thread and that I needed a place where I could kind of relate to people for once, so I joined this site.

    Well it's good that you found a place. I'm sorry about your dignoses, but at least you know what the problem is. And truthfully you're not the only one hiding these things, and personally you're not a freak.
    But welcome to SF... if you need to talk i'm here

    Hi Tatiana, welcome to SF. You aren't a freak at all...everyone has struggles to deal with. But it's good that you are getting help for this. I hope posting here will help you as well.

    Hello there. No need to feel freakish, depression is very common, just not always talked about in casual conversation so you tend to get the impression it is rarer than it is. OCD also not that rare. And yep, you've found a place in this forum where we're stacked to the rafters with mental disorders of all kinds. So welcome to you.
