Re: Why did you join TH? - June 25th 2012, 08:51 AM

I needed help for multiple reasons, Self Harm, Abuse, Suicidal Thoughts and my Eating Disorder. I was at a real low, although I've been lower in certain things than at the time, I was lower in other respects then, than I think I ever had been, I not only was dealing with all of those issues, I really didn't care, and I didn't respect myself or my body, and I was only 14. I'm so glad I came here though. I mean two years later and I still struggle with pretty much all of that, but I've realized for the most part that not only did I need to start recovering, I deserved it. I still have times where I don't believe that, but for the most part I know it, and I also respect myself a lot more, regardless of my self-esteem or confidence, I'm glad that I stopped doing certain things when I did. Things that honestly now looking back on, I am ashamed to think I could degrade myself like that. But I did, and I'm glad it's behind me now.

That awkward moment when you forget the polls automatically add your name when you add an option.

But anyways, I joined because I was having a tough time getting over my first breakup. It had been about 2 months after the breakup and I felt like I wasn't getting any better, so I decided to join and see what advice and support I could get. Pretty soon after I joined and learned about the staff here, I decided I wanted to become a part of that. So that is sort of another reason but it wasn't the initial.

I joined Teen-help at the age of 15 possibly 16 so July 06 when/after I had been physically assaulted, I needed help with abuse and bullying which as now pretty much stopped but still happens a-bit. I was also (and still am) struggling with family problems, self harm and friendship issues, and confidence issues and suicidal thoughts, flashbacks and panic attacks.

Hey, sorry I didn't realize there already was an ED option and I don't know how to take off my add in.

I found the site sort of on accident and kind of ironically. I was sadly searching for ana tips and this site came up and it was a thread on recovery and I found it very helpful and so I was reading around and saw that everyone was very supportive and helpful and I joined for help with SH, EDs, and suicidal thoughts.

I randomly came across TH on Google even though I hadn't been searching for help with anything at that time (I don't remember what I was searching ). I thought it seemed interesting so I checked it out and it seemed familiar (been on here or similar site when younger I think...). I believe I decided to join because I thought it could be useful to me and maybe I could be useful to others Not a very interesting story lol.

Re: Why did you join TH? - June 25th 2012, 12:36 PM

I came across it when randomly searching online for some kind of help; my boyfriend at that time was going through a very hard time. He had recently come out to his mother as a crossdresser, and she immediately thought he had a mental illness and threw him in therapy. When she found out I supported him, she made him break up with me and said we could have no contact whatsoever. She just became this evil controlling bitch that made him feel like a freak, it was awful. After finally getting through that situation, I stayed here at first because I'd made friends, and then it turned into me wanting to help others. After a long time of giving and recieving help, I wanted to contribute more and I became a stafff member. I'm here for the long haul!

Originally joined for advice on helping a friend because no one besides me took the situation seriously. Later, I began to realize that maybe I needed some help with problems of my own (mainly depression which developed from being abused) and I liked the fact that people here actually listened, wanted to help, and wouldn't judge me. Now I'm still getting support for my own issues and hoping to help others more and more often.

I believe I came here for the same reasons everyone else did. We wanted to seek help who could possibly help us out in some way. I stayed on here to hopefully open the mind of others by helping them out too. That's really the main purpose of this site and I like that.

I originally signed up because I had a few questions about sex. I stayed because of problems with an abusive ex-boyfriend, which fed into my self-harm & eating disorder. I mostly go on the site now because I love helping people (which is why I joined staff) & I love talking to the wonderful people here as well.

Re: Why did you join TH? - June 26th 2012, 12:12 AM

i joined TH a long time ago. i was simply looking for help as i was searching the internet. i was down, and chronically depressed... well, "depressed" is a word to sum it all up. i had relationship problems, anxiety, problem with people etc. found relief and some really good friends here, or support for that period.

now, that problem kind of stopped and i took pause from TH after 5-7 months of being here. after trying to find the right time to return, i did. but more casual this time... to rest my endlessly painful stress, read, to feel less alone in my difficult emotions... i love to help people too. but ugh, everything i do lately, for the last months, is to put the stress away. there's no other way to cope in my shoes. just trying to be honest. really though, i wouldn't stay here if it didn't help me. the site definitely makes me feel better and rather sane in positive sense.


I moved back while
my head was turned.

closer to the end.

Afraid of the dark
within future times.

I joined TeenHelp back in 2009. I needed help with self harm, suicidal thoughts, sexual abuse, sexuality & gender confusion, substance abuse, and an eating disorder. I was here for a bit, but did decide to stick around (obv). Been here since, can never get rid of me.

Hopefully you saw my write-in vote. Yeah, one of the hardest weeks of my entire life. I think everyone knew how traumatic that was for me. They had some idea, especially Xav .

It isn't gone yet. The image is still there and when I talk about, I nearly burst into tears still. It's a bit raw, but it was some of the worst and most powerful sights and sounds I have ever experienced.

I stayed on because of the people . And the age group. I was pretty predominant at my old site, MedHelp, but even though they were great, I was sick of hearing from fourty year old men and pregnant women where I needed help from people who see the way I do.

Sheesh, legit every second post was about conception and pregnancy, not what I need support with and certainly not people I find it very easy to talk to.


“At times the world may seem an unfriendly and sinister place,

Sorry, I hit "Other" before I saw we could add our own poll options.

I joined simply because I wanted to have a place to hang out and chat online with people of a similar age. Before TH, I was a large presence on Lost-TV which was, funnily enough, about the TV show Lost. It had people from the ages of 13 right up to the late 60s, so that was interesting in many ways, and TH is interesting in many other ways because the age range is mostly much smaller.

I post mainly in the bottom forums cuz I like chatting about media and current events with others of a similar age, and it's fascinating getting perspectives from different parts of the world.

Re: Why did you join TH? - June 27th 2012, 05:24 AM

I came on here originally because of my suicidal thoughts, self-harm, schizophrenia, panic disorder, depression, bullying, and many other factors. However, I don't have any of these things now so now I'm on staff to give back for all the wonderful help I've been given on here. (:

My reason for joining TH is because I had a friend commit suicide and I wasn't there for them that night. After that happened I figured there had to be other people out there having the same thoughts & that maybe I could help them in realizing that they are worth it & deserve to live. I came across TH and never looked back.

I primarily joined for Self Harm and Self Esteem issues.
After a month or so I decided to apply for staff and have been here ever since. I don't post much in the advice-based forums any more though.

Why did you join Blaine?

Never had any issues, I just wanted somewhere to talk to people of my own age.

I joined TH because I needed help with other reasons and of course I was looking for something else (free online chat therapy) and while looking around in yahoo answers, someone posted TH as an answered looked up and here I am today joined.

I came on here because my OCD/anxiety was just terribly bad. I was also depressed because of my OCD/anxiety.
