New here and needing support.. - November 3rd 2012, 11:37 PM

Hello there, my name is Reenie and I feel like another dark time is just about upon me as I've had troubles the last four year on and off. >w< And the winter months tend to be difficult for me anyhow.
So I thought that joining a forum where I could get support would be a good thing for me to do as I don't have any friends I can talk to about my problems... :c
Anyway, I am 17 years old. This year is my last in high school and it's sucking majorly as far as the social side of things goes--it seems I am public enemy no. 1 at school D": And this is really distressing to me as I've always looked for the best in people but it seems my classmates don't want to return the favor =/
Over the summer I spent 17 days in a mental health unit and they diagnosed me with major depressive, borderline personality and bipolar disorder...I've been taking meds, but without a support group it's not doing as much as it could.
If anyone is willing to talk with me about somethings, I'd be happy to lend support when I am better on my feet with my mood and stuff. <33
Thanks for reading and sorry if this is in the wrong place >w<

Hey Reenie!

Don't worry, you've posted in the right place. I'm Cara and one of the Buddies on the site so if you have any questions or just fancy a chat then send me a message and I'll be happy to help.

If you haven't already then I suggest reading these two threads since they contain the basic information of how the forums work and also explain all the different ways to get help here on the site : How to Use the Forums and Obtaining Advice or Support

Once again, if you do need somebody to talk to then I'm here. Take care!

Hey Reenie

I hope that we are able to help you and lend you the support that you are looking for.

Check out the Chat Room sometime. It is a nice place to hang out, though it can be really slow or really fast at times but one gets use to it. We have different rooms in there. The Chat Lobbies are for chilling out and and having fun. The Support and Advice rooms are for seeking help and talking about serious stuff. And we also have Facilitated Discussions on every Saturday at 3 different timings on various topics.

I promise that you won't be judged in here. You don't need to pretend and will be accepted for who you are.

Feel free to get in touch if you'd like to talk about anything.
I hope to see you around!

I have been having a lot going on lately, and kinda collapsed last Wednesday, but I saw my therapist today and am doing much better for the time being. <33

I will try to post more tomorrow, but for now I sleep.

Hi, Reenie! Welcome to TeenHelp. I'm Christabel, nice to meet you. <3 I'm glad you found us.
I'm sorry to hear about what you're going through.
If the winter months are more difficult, that could be a sign of S.A.D. Seasonal Affect Disorder. Let's hope not though.
Umm... I won't see bad in you. :3 I won't judge you. If you need to talk I'm here and happy to listen. You can VM/PM anytime you like. I'll be there with a smile and infinite support. I hope things get better for you.

Re: New here and needing support.. - November 15th 2012, 10:57 PM

Okay, so I've been trying to figure out how to word this for the last few days and I think I've got it...

You know how people say things like "It's better to have loved and lost then to have never loved at all." and stuff like "It better to be alone then to be someone you can't love." ? Well, I never understood those until now. The first saying I completely get now but it leaves me aching for love and feeling like my heart has been ripped out--because I have loved and still do have this deep emotional connection to this man who is just as narcissistic and funny and sweet as I am; problem is I can't be with him because it seems every force in the Universe is pulling us apart--his job EMSing; my senior year of high school; our mentors and my friends...it's like the Universe gave us both a taste of how amazing love can be and the took it away. It's as if a happy ending is not possible for us in this life...he told me he still loves me; and I believe that but our lives haven't crossed paths in the real world since August. )":
As far as that other saying goes; I understand that one too. I'm currently dating someone else but I can't talk to him like I do the man I love. I can see him and cuddle him and kiss him of course, but I can't connect with him emotionally...It's just, I like having him as my boyfriend because I get creature comfort but the deep intellectual and emotional connection I need isn't there...I know it's wrong to stay with him while I love another man, but if I don't have human contact at the very least I would lose all hope for love in the future...
Sorry this is a lot but it's been trapped inside my head for awhile now..
