Hello

Hi,

New here. Signed up with the intention of trying to connect with others who understand what it is like to live with mental illness and trying to deal with life. Have some friends in the "real world" but still can feel incredibly lonely and misunderstood at times so I thought I would give this a go.

Re: Hello

Hi @Helena92 ,

 

Firstly, a very warm welcome to you! 

 

You have come to the right place where you can connect with others who probably feel somewhat similar to how you are feeling. I remember when I used to be surrounded by people, but still felt so utterly lonely - not a pleasant space!

 

Feel free to have a little browse around. You are welcome to type a topic of interest into the SANE search bar to help you. 

 

I'll tag some members who may pop by to welcome you too! @Shaz51 @Judi9877 @Anastasia @AussieRecharger 

 

Please reach out if you have any questions.

Re: Hello

Hi, 

I joined for the same reason.

I have differed from Anxiety and Depression since primary school and now as a First time mum (Lockdown baby) it's been even harder not having had the support I would have imagined durring this significant life change. 

Loneliness is worse than a physical injury sometimes 😞 

Re: Hello

You have my understanding and support. I can totally relate to people not understanding. What particular mental health illness are you dealing with in particular?

Re: Hello

Welcome. It can be so hard with ‘real world’ friends where it’s helpful when they understand but you also don’t want them to have experienced the same struggles you have - I get this.

Re: Hello

I've been struggling with anxiety and depression most of my life. My psychologist thinks i also may have undiagnosed ADHD (I'm 29) which would make a lot of sense too

Re: Hello

Hi and welcome, @Helena92 , @TheHeart , @91struggles  and @Trifle79 ! 

 

It's good that you've all joined, and I hope you find the forums supportive. 

 

A handy forum tip is if you type @ and click on a name in the drop-down box, that person will get a notification and won't miss your reply. 

 

You can also type any topic into the Search bar above to find threads on that topic. 

 

A good place to start and meet people is on the Good Morning!  thread (it runs all day). 

 

I hope you enjoy exploring the forums.
