Who am I.

Recommended Posts

Hello... I am new to Crazyboards and thought I'd break the ice a little instead of lurking for years.

I suffer with OCD, PTSD, MAJ. DEP., and GAD. I'm also a hardcore Hypochondriac.

I have been beaten into the ground year by year by all of these shackles.

I am just looking for more friends who truly do care.

I'm excited for the opportunity to help people, be helped and generally be comforted in the camaraderie this group can offer.

I am currently in therapy to learn to better handle these things. I am only on one prescription medication: Klonopin (PRN)

My life has all but been ruined by these things. I find no joy in living and I find no peace in death. I feel like I am stuck in limbo. I'm sure you all know plenty well how I'm feeling.

I'm not suicidal and self-mutilation arises only in certain situations.

Thank you for listening. I hope to provide any help I can to others.

Thank you!

Hi. You're free to lurk, too, until you feel safe enough to post. That's allowed.

Something that resonated in your post: Your life is only as ruined as you let it be. Yes it might be a struggle, but that is not a bad thing. The struggles help us to grow and to become better (and stronger) people. Does this mean reaching out and accepting help? Yes. But, honestly, the alternative is worse. There is nothing so sad as someone in their nineties who has been denying help for decades - now that's a ruined life. Don't be that person.
