I wanted to take a moment to say "hi, I'm new!"

I'm a 20-something living in London and I have a long history with bipolar disorder, OCD and anxiety. It's taken me literally years to be open about my mental health problems; they started when I was a very young teenager and caused me to alienate myself socially.

I'm very fortunate to have a close circle of friends - all of whom I am very open about my "quirks" with - but I joined this forum in the interest of meeting more like-minded people. Living with mental illness is hard, but finding others who understand some of what you're going through - I find - helps massively.

I'm probably more comfortable talking about taboo topics than most out there, and I have a fairly dark sense of humour. I'm a good listener and like taking time to show people I care about that I'm there for them (as so many times my close friends have been there for me). I'm also very creative - most of my anxious and manic energies go into mosaic, crochet, and jewellery-making projects.

If you're looking for a new friend or just want someone to chat to, hit me up.
