michael37 Posted December 6, 2009 Share Posted December 6, 2009 Hey, My name is Michael. I heard about this site from someone on Livejournal, so I thought I would give it a try. I'm a 20 year old college student. I've had depression since I was probably about 10. I've tried a couple of times to get help for it from therapists, but it's never really helped. I've been on like 8 different types of medication for it and it's never really helped. I think it's mainly because my issues aren't really overly related to chemical issues, they're related to my life sucking issues. Baiscally I'm here because the only time I have found my issues getting better is when I talk to people who have been through similar things or are going through them. Therapy doesn't work for me, so I think this is the best option. I really need friends that have dealt with the kind of issues I have and are able to help me deal with them. I do have a friend in real life, but I can't keep burdening her with my issues. I'm not sure how much detail I should go into in an intro thread, but I'm basically suffering from long-term depression as well as self-injury. A lot of my issues stem from my parents' divorce and dealing with my mom always treating me like I was worthless. I also have gender issues, which haven't really helped anything. Anyway, hopefully some of you would like to get to know me. I could really use some friends right now. I feel so alone and like I can't do it on my own anymore.
