Hi there. My name is Lauryn, I am in my late twenties and am diagnosed with PTSD (and all the fun things like anxiety that comes with that). When I spotted this forum I was excited. The last few weeks/months have been pretty rough; it's not just that I'd like someone to talk to but that I would really like to make some friends. Friends who kind of understand that days can be struggles are even better. I found this today because I was feeling pretty down and trying to find an online suicide chat line. For some reason they are all closed on Saturday morning. I decided to browse for a good forum and found this. I have to say that even just finding and signing up on this site have made me feel a little hopeful and even excited to make new friendships and be apart of what seems to be a wonderful support system. So hello and Good Morning! I am looking forward to getting to know everyone. And I promise I am like, wicked funny when I'm feeling okay.
