Hello, I'm new. - December 25th 2020, 09:11 PM

Hello. I'm Soda. I'm somewhat new to this kind of forum, I've been on edited Forum (don't worry! it's a very friendly support-only forum!) for a bit, and I came across this site out of a random unrelated Google search and after checking around for a bit, I decided this site seemed safe enough and thought I'd join.

I don't expect I'll be a daily user, but I'll pop on every so often. I'm a bit difficult with talking to people - I have autism, depression and anxiety - but I'll try my best. I put some things about me in my about me section. I also wanna try talking about my feelings more in a less toxic way, that won't upset people I know. Ofc I'll just hang around for funsies too.

Anyway I really don't know what else to say. o/

Hello and welcome to Teen Help!

I wouldn't worry about your difficulties with chatting to people. A lot of other members here are quite similar so you'll fit right in.

Ahaha ironically, I don't actually like soda! The nickname originally came from the rock, Sodalite. I like apple juice and chocolate milk, though

Welcome to TeenHelp, Soda!

It's more than okay to take your time to settle in. I'm sure you'll fit in here and that you'll find our community friendly and supportive. I also hope that you'll be able to talk about your feelings a bit more too- keeping things bottled up isn't good so being able to express your feelings might help you to feel a bit better too
