Hi, I'm MrsB...

Well where to start... I'm 26, married and overall very shy.

I have suffered MH problems since the grand age of 12... Them teenage schoolgirls can be oh so mean! I have been a self harmer since then.. And that's where it's all stemmed from... As ive got older things have gotten worse...

I suffered post natal depression after DD was born... The usual Prozac... Attempts with the MH team... Which failed...

Over the last 7 years ive been on various medication and now I'm at the stage of severe depression, social anxiety and still self harming. I am now (I use the term lightly ) recieving 'help' .... I have a mental health care worker .. A month or so in now... We are attempting something called the "recovery star" no idea really...

I have a few people who know the real me, not the fake one we all show... Even my husband mostly sees the fake me... But was hoping to find some Friends who I could get to know etc support each other ... The last one I made years ago committed suicide :(

That's me in a nutshell...

Mrs B out for now... x

:welcome: to the forum.

I had the same experience at School than you and only now I am facing up to it.

I understand about having a fake and real you, I think everyone has those sides. Only two people who I am in contact get the real me and that is my Friend and my therapist.

Have a look round the forum we have sub forums for both Depression and Social Anxiety. I have Social Anxiety myself.

I'm glad you have help but I'm sorry about the self harming, I know how hard that is to control.

Take a look round and shout if you have any questions or need help.
