Unhappy Im new and I have a story. - November 2nd 2012, 10:15 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

My name is Delwen Ruby B but i would prefer it if you guys call me Ruby.
Im 17 and went through a lot of sadness and grief in my last 10 years of my life.
When I was 10, I was diagnosed with Major Depression, OCD, Major Anxiety, Argophobia, SH, and I was told that I was a very sucidial person. This controlled my life and I still havent stopped.

I lost my boyfriend and bestfriend to suicide, and I am going to be very honest with you guys. I have 13 suicide attempts. I self harm everyday. I can't help it. I have been in trouble with the law.

Last year, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and she was taken from me, because I was considered "dangerous". I rarely see her.

I study Dance and I am currently a level 8 dancer at the SDA which stands for Sydney Academy of Dance.

Uhm, I don't mind questions or whatever.

Thanks for reading, I guess.

Hi Ruby,

My name's Hamed, seventeen year old former student from Sydney. I am so sorry to hear you have gone through such a tough time in your only seventeen years. I hope that we can support you and help you through this and please realise you're not alone. I mean that's what we're here for.


And you know what? I think your story can inspire other people.... cause you're still here .


WOOHOO!!!!!!!! You're Aussie xD. I'm seventeen too!!!!!!!! I'm Aussie too!!!! xD. You'll find heaps of Australians on here, I mean we da best we dominate in heaps of things:

Cricket *cheers*.
Weather *cheers*.
The Coast *cheers*.
Politics *silence*.


Feel free to PM me or VM me any time and I'll respond .

H. (That's me, my nickname xD).
P.S. I have got a fun fact for you =). Did you know that..... You're beautiful? =3.

“At times the world may seem an unfriendly and sinister place,
But believe that there is much more good in it than bad.
All you have to do is look hard enough,
And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey.”

~My Childhood Friend.

Hi Ruby! Welcome to the site.
I'm Chess, a Project Officer on here (basically I'm in charge of the Articles section... which you should check out if you get a chance). I also like to help, so let me know if there's anything I can do for you, whether it's giving advice, providing support, or answering questions about the site.
I'm sorry you've been through so much. But you know what? You're still here. And that counts for a lot. I strongly believe that struggles and challenges and yes, even pain, can make someone stronger, and if you don't let it hold you back, you can achieve great things.
I mean, that's kind of lofty for some stranger to say, isn't it? But you know what I mean. You have so much potential, regardless of all these things that have happened to you or that you're dealing with, and I think that you can rise above them and become the person you want to be. And it's okay if you need help with that - which is exactly what we're here for.
There are many ways to get help on the site, like HelpLINK, Live Help, or the Chat Room, but I'll let somebody else (maybe one of the lovely buddies) explain those to you in more detail, since this is becoming quite a long response and I should try to wrap it up soon. In short, I'm glad you joined, and I hope you find the help you're looking for here. Take care, and happy posting.

Oh! And did I mention I'm Australian too? We're pretty cool.

let no science fix our path
if only numbers make its math.

Hey there Ruby! I'm aussie to, can ya believe? I live up the coast from Sydney in a small place called tweed

I'm sorry to see that your child has been taken away, I was taken away from my mum but returned (mum was on anti-depressants and shit like that) so there is a chance you could get her back. but, your illness's do not define you, nor control you. So many people live with these diagnosis's and you would not be able to guess.
me? Anxiety, depression, self harm, suicidal, delusional at times, PTSD. Nobody could guess. They know only because of a suicide attempt 17 days ago. But, there is a point, I have lived with these (PTSD and Anxiety for 7 years) depression, delusions, self harm only the past three years.

Stay strong, chase your dream, ignore the diagnosis's and fight for your child.

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.
