hey guyss i'm new and heres a wee introduction.

i'm laura, i'm 19 and i'm a social work student from just outside of glasgow.

i suffer from depression, which has been constant since i was 13. also ed-nos since i was 15. on and off post traumatic stress and anxiety. i've sort of hit a wall in my treatment progress. i've been switched about medications alot and been through two courses of psychology. i think alot of the going downwards, has been biased towards my age (see my recent post in depression forum) :mad:

anywayy i'm just basically looking for some friends and support, and i'll give the same back. i'm on livejournal, if anyone else is feel free to add me: http://www.livejournal.com/~starsburnaway

look forward to talking to you all :)

Hi Laura,
:welcome:

I have bipolar but was treated for depression for years before my diagnosis. I struggle much more with the depressive side of the illness and have milder forms of mania (bipolar ll)

I was a social worker for 6 years until my family life and my health got too much for me. But I do keep remembering that each individual that I helped, even a small amount, was worth it. Keep going and if you have any questions or would like any support on your course from an ex pro! please message me privately if you wish.

Good luck
SG
