    Hi, so basically I joined up because sometimes I feel speaking to others who also live with mental health problems is far easier then speaking to those who don’t necessarily have any experience with mental health problems. So Hi I’m Devilyn and maybe I’ll speak with a few of you soon. I have...

    What kind of help is there for people feeling suicidal? I need to talk about it but to be honest I have trouble speaking in person or on the phone. Is there any sites specifically made for it?

    A question for the non/self diagnosed

    Do you ever consider you may be selectively looking for facts to prove ASD/NVLD to yourself, and ignoring contrary evidence ? I do wonder,personally speaking, whether it's about the need to find something that explains how and who you are.

    Selectively Mute friend?

    I was diagnosed with Selective Mutism when I was 4 years old. Kindergarten through grade 3, for me, was pretty rough. I switched schools just before starting grade 4, and I kept telling myself that no one knows me here, so I can just be myself. It actually worked, and even though I was still...
