I'm Cassie and I'm 16. I suffer from depression, low self-esteem, I cut myself (trying to quit. It's been almost 3 weeks now!!), and I sometimes strave myself or force myself to throw up. I'm not looking for attention or sympothy just some support. I need as much as I can get as I'm sure everyone on this site does. That's why we're here right? To just get a little support.

Fallen, welcome to the group. It is wonderful that you have gone three weeks without cutting. "One day at a time" is a great way to think about recovery. I agree with Joy, that you can work on your throwing up some day too. Please PM me any time if you need support or just some positive reinforcement. And post about your concerns any time.

Hello Cassie and welcome. You are not alone a lot of us suffer from various mental disorders, i have bipolar I and have anxiety and in the past have had addiction issues. I was 18 when i had an involunary hospitalization in a psych. ward, spend 9 wks now this was a long long time ago was back in 1982, felt my world was crashing down on me. Please do not give up hope, i almost did back then but eventually i got the supports lined up and did get back on my feet again, i know you will too. Glad you've found this group, looking forward to seeing more of you.

Thanks. I was involuntaryly hospitalized too last year at the end of October. My parents found out I was cutting and I attempted suicide so I was locked up and a million other things happened that caused my life to spiral out of control. Compared to this time last year I'm a million times happier but I still want to cut, I still get depressed, I still hate myself. I break down, I cry alot, but some part of me is getting better. I can feel it. It's taken alot to get as good off as I am and it's going to take alot more till i'm completely better. One day though...maybe...i'll be free from all of this.
