Hi everyone. I’m a 19 year old student diagnosed with Social Anxiety disorder and Depression. To add to it all, I have Asperger syndrome, which just adds confusion to my anxiety. I enjoy drawing, reading and writing my own stories which help me deal with my emotions.

My current life situation is that I’m currently signed off from college due to an unstable mental state due to constant breakdowns, taking more pills than I should, skipping classes and finally coming out that I’ve been hearing a voice for a while now. I have already seen my GP as I’m trying my best to get better, however it’s still a fight. I’m going to the mental health ward for an appointment this week. I hope things will be ok.

Despite the anxiety, I do love meeting new people. I do get paranoid, but it doesn’t stop me from answering a message.

It just takes one step at a time.

Welcome, Angel! I have found writing about my mental illness to be therapeutic too. :)
Yeah, when I write my stories, it helps me to escape into a reality when my mind doesn't become as troubled.
