Hi everyone, I just joined this community. My name is Mia. I am a college student and I struggle with depression and social anxiety. Lately I haven’t been able to cope well with the large amounts of work and stress that school and my family have put on me. I am determined to get better because I want to show myself that life can be better. It’s nice to meet you all.
I just joined and am exploring how to use this place. I am not technologically advanced. I was typing with a therapy request bot named Sophia just a little while ago. I did not know what a bot meant so I thought I was conversing with a live person who typed very fast. I type e-x-t-r-e-m-e-l-y s-l-o-w-l-y.
I heard about 7cups on a private group that discusses mental health challenges. So I'm checking it out as a place where maybe I could grow through some barriers in a safe community setting, and pass my feedback along to others.
There is a lot for me to learn about navigating around. I am wondering if there is a list of therapists to view? Or is someone able/willing to coach me through learning how to even get started charting my path here? I'm in a cognitively/emotionally challenged place, hopefully only temporarily, but definitely somewhat stuck.
Thank you and I'll see how I do here!
