Random Facts

1. I am a mum

2. I'm almost positive i could live on a chocolate only diet

3. I watch crazy cat videos on youtube for fun!

Re: Introduce yourself here

 @darrenhayes why do you make the provocative statement "you dont have any friends" before you ask the question, "whys that" which is only rhetorical?  

Can you see that there might be an implied insult in that post, or why some people might get upset?

Re: Introduce yourself here

What brings me to the forum?
The amazing friends I have made
The support care and information given by others and even the moderators
To share my story of childhood abuse depression anxiety and BPD
Non judgemental and the privacy of this forum allows me to be me 😊

Re: Introduce yourself here

I don't understand what is happening to me, cannot sleep no matter what medication.

Frightened to leave the house almost 10 years.

Best friends are the ones I imagine make me happy.

Tired of life.
