Had depression and anxiety long time now but really bad last few years mainly through family problems. I haven't done anything like this forum before but I can see that there is a lot of understanding people on here and it sometimes helps to talk.

Hi Flowerpot,

Welcome to the forum. I was like you, I joined a couple of months ago and had never been part of any forum before this but it's a great place to be. You're sure to find lots of support and people who understand.


Hi and :welcome:

Forums can really help! An understanding place full of people who "get" what you're going through. What's not to like?

It may help you to dump some of your issues here and make some friends whilst remaining anonymous.
It's hard to find people to listen to that degree in r/life sometimes.

Hope it works out for you here. Any Q's please ask!

Welcome to the forum, Flowerpot. :hi:
Personally, I reckon the introduction is the hardest bit - which you've done.
Hope you find it easier to post now, and I look forward to getting to know you better.
