so here I am.

 

Not sure what to tell about myself. Twenty something... been on the crazy side all my life, dealing with it for better or worse. Mostly on my own.

 

Right now I am in somehow stressful period of my life (finished school and off to job market with fancy education, little experience or practical knowledge... and it all seems harder than it should be. I paid for my education with part of my sanity and self-confidence... long story... ).

 

So... hello?

Welcome to Crazyboards.  As I do with all new members, I will ask you to read the User Agreement so you understand how we operate.

 

I hope you like it here and get some helpful support and information.

 

After I post this, I will move the thread to the Introductions forum.

“Forgiveness is a strange thing. It can sometimes be easier to forgive our enemies than our friends. It can be hardest of all to forgive people we love. Like all of life's important coping skills, the ability to forgive and the capacity to let go of resentments most likely take root very early in our lives.”
― Fred Rogers

Learning coping skills and self-soothing is of course very important and there is a lot of help on here for that.  However, we are a pro-med and pro-treatment site.  So don't be surprised if we all push you to get professional help.  We don't mean to be rude but we all speak from experience.
