Introducing myself - March 16th 2009, 12:00 AM

Hey everyone! I'm 17 and I stumbled across this site a few days back, when I searched for teen help on the net (and got a website with the exact name lol).

I'm struggling with depression and binge eating that come and go. There are good days and bad days, and right now I'm pretty down. I always have hope though, hope dies last as they say. I try to maintain a cheerful front and everything, but the truth is it's wearing me out, living life like this...... Not to mention that I realize I'm lying to myself every time I pretend things are fine.

Well, that's the summary of it. I'll see you guys around.

Aw, it sucks to hear things are going so badly =(
You've definately come to the right place though. TeenHelp is a great place to receive help and support for all sorts of things.
Be sure to check out the two stickied threads at the top of this forum as well as the
Depression and Suicide Forum. I hope you'll get the support you need.
The community here is warm, friendly and I know you'll fit in just fine.
Just be sure to give me a PM if you have any questions about anything or just want to chat.
Catch you around! =)

Hey there! I'm Shaz.

Welcome to TeenHelp. I'm glad that you joined and I hope you find whatever you need here. As Janos said, we're a nice community here and I'm sure you'll settle in well. As you're new you might want to check out these two 'sticky' threads: How to use the forums and Obtaining advice and support. Both very helpful threads for new members.

I'm sorry that things aren't going particularly well for you at the moment. Feel free to make a new thread asking for help, in the forum it relates to/is about. People will always be willing to help/listen to you. My PM box is always open, if you need advice on something or you just want a chat.

Take care and I look forward to seeing you around the forums!

Hello! I'm Jessi...welcome to TeenHelp, although I'm sorry it's not under the best circumstances.

I hope you can find the support you need while you are here with us. If you need anything, you can send me a PM or talk to one of those light green guys. They are the site Buddies, and are here to answer any questions you may have.

If you ever want to talk about anything, I'm here. =]

in a long time,
I can say that I wanna try.
I feel helpless for the most part,
but I'm learning to open my eyes.
And the sad truth of the matter is,
I'll never get over it,
but I'm gonna try
to get better and overcome each moment
in my own way"

Hey there, I'm Lou, cute user name :]
I'm sorry to hear things are rough for you just now. You've come to an awesome place for support, and advice.
Why not check out the chat room to meet some new folks, and make some friends?
Do let me know if you ever need anything.

Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."

Hey there, as has been said the circumstances of your joining are pretty lame (and I do not mean the mp3 encoder ). The community here is, for the most part, nice and understanding. Drop me a VM if you want to talk

Hey there and welcome to TH, I'm Ellie :]

I'm glad that you were able to find us, because it does sound like you could do with some support right now. There are tons of places to get that help and support here on TH, not only the forums but the Support and Advice room in the chat room and LiveHelp too! Please know that we're here to support you in any way that we can, and I'm sure you'll find people here who can relate to what you're going through at the moment.

Remember, my PM box is open any time you want or need to talk.
Take care, and I hope to see you around :]

Hey Welcome to teenhelp!
Nice to have you here. I'm Kaila.

It's great to know that you found us when you really need some help. I came here when I didn't have a lot of places to turn to and everyone was able to pick me back up. Have you started posting in the forums yet? I hope everyone will be able to help you sort things out...times can be hard.

Make sure you take a glance at the helpful links above. They are sooo useful lol.

Great to have you here!
