    sleep deprivation AGAIN

    To make a long story short, I take walks to create the sleep cycle. I hurt my leg and am afraid to walk. Hence, no sleep. I just went from having a life to having no life. I figure it'll be no worse than three days of this. As long as I don't listen to the depressive thoughts, I'll be okay. I...

    I love you all!

    Just registered to this forum. I've been dealing with mental health problems for best part of a decade, now being 23. I don't even think a brief summary is possible at this point as I'm sure you'll be able to empathise with all too well. I'm hoping that I can be there to help others :flowers:

    He's basically perfect. He's concerned about me. He's sent me flowers ;) he knows I'm very very ill and he thought that would help me feel better. He doesn't smoke!!! Which is the first time someone has had an interest in me that doesn't smoke. Even though I've dabbled in smoking, I'm against...
