Might as well post an introduction thread.

My name is Alyssa. I'm 18, turning 19 in a month and a day (!!!!) and I go to a community college in New York state. It's my first semester, I just graduated high school this past June.

Joined because I suffer from undiagnosed depression, also battle with self injury, anddd I'm bisexual. Figure if I need any sort of help with anything I can come here. I also think I have social anxiety, or definitely Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Oh boy I've had my fair share of panic attacks.

I also joined because I'm very good at giving advice, my friends tell me at least. Empathy is one of my big strengths, so if anyone ever needs to talk to anyone I'm here.

Hey Alyssa...welcome to TeenHelp! I'm Tor, one of the buddies here on this site. If you need help finding something or have any questions, feel free to ask me or another buddy (we have lime green usernames).

There are a lot of users who battle with the same issues...depression, SI, sexuality...so I'm sure you can relate to a lot of people here.

Hope to see you around!

Yayy! Alyssa took my advice and introduced herself!
I feel so proud! haha!
Wow, what you just described sounds almost exactly like the same things I suffer from. Weird....anyway, I'm recovering and hopefully we can help you too! That's great you are willing to help others. I'm sure everyone will be very appreciative.
Hope to see ya around,
Alessa


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

Thanks to both of you for the welcoming!

Angelina- I definitely will check out the chat room, I was already in there for a little bit earlier but no one was talking so I just kind of left, lol.

Tor- Thanks for the help, I'll be sure to seek you out if I have any questions
Yes, I've already found a bunch of threads and whatnot that relate to me and my issues, lol. I'm pretty excited to get started here.

haha, I did take your advice!

Well unfortunately a lot of these things go hand in hand; depression, self injury, anxiety. Then some sexuality issues lead to depression related issues and whatnot. What a vicious cycle it all is.
Yes! I love helping other people, especially with issues that I'm already very educated about. Of course, learning about new things is always good, too.
