This is not a requirement, but it is heavily encouraged

We cover all aspects of mental health from stress to psychosis, from dissociation to anxiety. You do not need to have experianced a mental health issue to join, you just need to have a want and passion to spread the truth of this topic and destroy the myths and steriothypes surrounding it

Hello all.
My grandma recently attempted to commit suicide, so I'm putting
together a get well/welcome home package that includes a big card.

My family and I would greatly appreciate it if others left some words
of encouragement for her to add to the card to show that she matters.

Details can be found in my journal here: fav.me/d9ypmcv

This attempt has left all of us devastated, but we are pushing ahead
and surrounding her with all of the love and support that she needs.

Thank you for taking the time to read this

I hope I can belong here.
I still am in the darkness. Trying to find my way out.
I know that sound's dramatic and over the top but it's true. 
I have MPD, Major Depression, insomnia  and really bad anxiety.
I hate asking for help. But I don't want to be alone....
Please don't judge me. :icondepressedplz:
I just need a friend....or someone to talk to.. 
I'm sorry for randomly putting this in the comments.

Thank you for letting me join. I have PTSD.
I got PTSD at a very very young age.
People bullied me, not physically. But verbally, I had a hard time trying to fit in to different groups without the fear of being rejected. I sometimes cried myself to sleep because I wasn't like everyone else.
When I finally was going into 6th grade, my mom didn't want me to go to a public middle school because of how bad my anxiety was of being rejected again. So that school year I attended a school with the same groups as the last one. I even was apart of the popular kids, it was weird, but I was mostly ignored. So I drifted away from them and decided to leave that school. Then next year brought me a better school where I could be myself in front of others where I won't be rejected. People still ignore me, but I learn to just accept that.
I also met my best friend :iconkyrietherandomcat: she's like a sister to me :D
But I still have flashbacks of people, places & events, not so much of horrible dreams.
That's my story..

Thank you for being brave enough to share your story with us. I know it is bad now, but if you keep believing, and have hope, and be yourself, then a better life is on the way. I say this as someone who is going through struggles myself; it is pretty hard and depressing for me as well, but I just keep going on because there is somewhere I am meant to be, and when I get there all of this I am feeling right now will be worth it, and the same for youthe only thing is that you cannot give up!! Do not accept being ignored; you deserve so much better than that!!! And I am glad you have a friend!!
Stay strong!
