Hi there, I'm new here so I thought I'd say hello...
I'm 23 years old and I work part time in a pub whilst doing my masters. I've had SA my whole life, but it really improved when I got to uni. Unfotunately I've recently seen some of the symptoms creeping back into my everyday life and I don't know how to cope. I'm actually very close to the deadline for my masters project but I'm really worried I'm going to slip back into a depression. For the past year I've consistently felt empty and sad and had started self harming again, which I haven't done since I was a teenager. The trouble is, my mood has meant that I've pushed a lot of people away and so I don't feel I have anyone to turn to anymore. Or perhaps my mood is because I've pushed people away, I can't exactly be sure...

I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm moaning. I'm not really sure what I'm looking for. I think I'd just like to not feel so alone. I'm really scared that I'm going to completely ruin my whole life. Maybe I'm just not meant to be here?

xx

I'm sorry that you're self harming again :( Hopefully, this forum will give you the support you need. It's hard at first because you feel like a nobody like you do in real life, but once you post a few times, people start to recognize you and respond to your messages :) It's a cool community for the most part!
