This is my first time on such a forum but not my first brush with mental illness. The last thing I want to do is appear as a wreck so I'll do my best to remember my composure.

I have had depression for 13 years since I was around 12 years old that was also around the first time I wanted to kill myself but clearly things changed but they didn't improve. Over the years I have built my defenses up but they are constantly side stepped by my anxiety condition which makes me feel constantly sick and after 7 years of that I have little energy spare to dedicate to those defenses.

I have sought for the first time professional help if this is a sign things are getting better or worse is unsure all I know is my usual places are no place to discuss it so I sought out a place that I can hopefully share and maybe help others too.

So hello.

Thanks for the quick welcome

I need all the help I can get to survive the day by day currently, especially going into professional help after so long so I'm sure this will be a good place to get that needed extra help.

Welcome to the forum. :hi:
Don't worry about how you appear. It doesn't matter if you are a wreck.
I'm glad to hear that you've sought out some professional help. It sounds like you've been struggling a lot and for such a long time.
