I'm "Melody", I'm 18 years old.
I've been probably just like you are at the moment - messed up, depressed and sad. I've visited psychiatrists and diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, depression, anxiety and more.
I have experiences with self-harm, panic attacks, antidepressants, and suicide attempts.
At the moment I can say - depression is not the winner. It takes time but it gets better, there will be ups and downs but this is life. I'm here to listen you - you are NOT alone!
You have to learn to live with yourself and accept yourself. Maybe you'll never be like others but that's not a bad thing at all. My mission is to support all the different, unique people who think they're not good and normal enough or don't find their place in this world. At the moment I don't want to be anyone else. All that pain has made me who I am.
Also I support all who have been depressed because of school or school system. I really know what you're going through.
Little bit about me.
I'm artistic person. I've attended 3 years of artschool and I love writing. One thing that has helped me get over my depression is writing dairy. Also I read too much books and don't watch TV. I'm addicted to internet (hey, who isn't?). I'm perfectionist and set myself high standards all the time (which, I think, is the main reason of my depression).
We can talk about suicide, life, death, self-harm, depression or not being good enough. We can talk about your favourite music, movies or books. There is nothing wrong letting all the sadness and bad thoughts out. Sometimes letting it all out makes you understand yourself better.
