Kinda new...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I joined these boards about two weeks ago, so I'm not quite new. However, I'm hoping my username will be changed soon, so you guys can call me Daisy from now on! ;)

I've put a lot of info about myself and why I'm here on my About Me page. Read it if you so desire; it's long, so I won't get offended if you skip it! This is mostly why I'm changing my username -- it contains a lot of personal detail. I've simply found that if I want to support others, they may want to know where I'm coming from. The same is true if I'm the one needing support. I've learned that to really DEAL with things, I have to get honest with others -- and myself. Including the biggest parts of my life, even if they make me identifiable, is the best way for me to do that. I'm attempting to minimize that risk by taking my real name off of this website.

I guess you could say I'm not comfortable with having a mental illness. I tend to hide it. Most of my friends have no idea. So the thought that somebody from my outside world could stumble upon this site and recognize me scared me! So even though Daisy is not my name, it is something I feel represents how I come off to people in real life. I equate daisies with positivity and kindness. They are genuine and simple. One of the "official" meanings of the daisy is that love conquers all. And if I believe one thing in this life -- it's that. So I'm Daisy. :)

I've already seen how supportive these boards are and I'm very excited to be here. I have already gotten great advice, and I hope I've given it. While some forums attack new members, everybody here has been great. I'm happy I found this place! I feel that it will be a very good place to turn when I'm in need.

So that page is pretty much ME in a (long) nutshell. I'm horribly boring, but I always like to write those "About Me" things anyways -- it's very easy to "forget" to put in some of your bigger flaws! :)
