Hey =)

I'm new to this site; just signed up... 2 days ago I think. I have already posted a few times, but I decided to introduce myself here also.

My name is Kaitlin, and I'm 16 years old and a junior in high school. I have a few friends, but not really any super close ones (except online). I'm happy for the most part, but sometimes I come across as being negative or critical. It's not purposeful, though, and sometimes I just complain to feel better.

To be honest, I don't know for 100 pct certain if I have SA... but I do feel pretty sure that I do. I probably don't have it as severe as some people, but it does affect my ability to make friends, and my ability to get a job as I am afraid of bosses/people I have to impress to get a job.

I'm glad I found this site. It makes me feel that I'm not alone, and that other people have it worse than me. I also feel that a lot of the people on this site are kind and positive, and you don't get that a lot on the internet.

Good luck everyone, and remember that there's always hope, and that your situation can always improve. Life may take some turns for the worse, but it can also take some surprising turns for the better. (Of course, taking action is a lot better way to improve your life.)

Mental illness is what some have, not who they are.
