hello everyone!
firstly i just want too say a big thank you too everyone who welcomed me here its been a really big relief knowing that someone maybe cares or that somewhere im welcomed i really do appreciate it greatly ❤
i hit quite a rough patch over the last year or so, i first experianced bad mental health when i was 13 until i was 16 and i felt like i was starting too get a grip on what i was living with and things were looking good, when i turned 18 i began too too get very down again and i started getting really really nervous of people and being around more then one person, i started isolating myself more and more because i felt like i didn't belong anywhere and that everyone hated me. the only time i would leave the house was too go too work and i would frequently get overwhelmed by the world around me. i carry alot of personal traumas with me that are constantly going through my head and i cant let them go :( everyone who i thought cared or had hope in me is gone and i feel so alone because i dont know who too turn too or what too do, all the support i thought i had is gone everything seems too be falling apart and theres noting i can do about it i feel totally hopeless and lost right now, im really sorry if this all sounds like a big sob story i really am sorry :(
thank you for taking the time too read this.

It's not a sob story, never feel bad for sharing on here, that's what this place is for. Social anxiety sucks for sure, and trauma makes it that much harder. Do you have family or close friends that weren't part of your trauma?

There's no need to say sorry, but I understand why, its a habit of mine when sharing with family and friends feels almost like I'm forcing them to carry some of my troubles when they don't even understand. But here is different, we understand and this is a place we all turn to when we need some extra support. If you are comfortable answering, have you ever seen anyone professional about the traumas? Any talking therapy's, group meetings, medication? That kind of thing? If you don't feel comfortable sharing on here, my inbox is always open.
