Hello Everyone Im Ruby
& Im looking for some friends and people who understand how im feeling
and trying to cope with depression, i am 18 yyears old and on medication but i am coming off them in around 4 weeks and since ive been weened down to the lowest dosage i have been feeling awful and keep breaking down in tears, im depressed, fed up, comfort eating and im paranoid.
I have food issues, not bad and not an eating disorders but i am constantly trying to lose weight, its a constant battle for me as if i dont lose weight i get angry and upset and go comfort eat and then i feel awful even more and its a viscious circle, i did well with my diet but now im even more depressed i am finding it so hard and im terrified of going back up to my highest weight.

I used to selfharm and have stopped for over a year now but lately i have been pinching/bruising when im anxious and not really thinking about it, i dont want to go down that road again and my boyfriend doesnt understand and im trying to make friends at college, i am friends with most people but i am scared to confide in people but it makes me feel alot better when i talk about things even if im just having a rant.

people often think i am making excuses for not doing things but im not its just theres always something getting in my way.

I am a student but i have been a student before twice and dropped out because of my depression but now ive been doing great until i got my meds down to 10mg and now im scared i wont be able to cope with college.
