    First post

    Hi, I've been trying not to self harm again and thought I'd come here to read some of the other threads for support and advice. My world recently fell apart and I just feel so empty.

    Extremely Nervous

    Hi everyone, I don’t really know what to say apart from that I am new here and that my mental health and I haven’t been getting along for a while now.

    2015 has sucked!

    Yeah. I lost my flat. You may recall older threads about it. Then I breached my bail terms. The procurator fiscal had me fully committed before a trial started up again so bail was not possible for ages. I was also called a sex offender. It is all crap and lies.

    Ok so Ive never been on one of these sites before. I see there are many rooms/ threads so unsure where to put this. I'm so worried one of my best friends, who has been self-harming for many years... and now I'm afraid she has developed some sort of eating disorder. Every time I see her now she...

    First thread and announcmet

    There is no good reason for me to post this thread about my thoughts and feelings other than venting them out to some unfortunate readers for (whats the word???) I dunno... I'm probably doing this for attention because I'm secretly an egoist (just like everyone else) and I thought 'hey lets make...

    Diagnosis time frame?

    Im basically new to the forum, so hey. So one question I say to myself when I read posts and threads, how long was it until you were diagnosed?

    What percentage do people think of how much I tell them is true?

    It would be interesting to know what percentage people think of what I say is true? This is for the thread Diary of chesterking, and the other threads as well. So that will be 0% true, 25% true, 50% true, 75% true or 100% true. http://www.mentalhealthforum.net/forum/thread105060.html
