I know this board is on a very personal subject and not everyone feels comfortable talking about depression or other mental health conditions, but I'm hoping that this board can become a safe and supportive board where everyone can get support when they need it. If you have a mental health condition please stop in and say hi.

Hello!

I wasn't sure which board would fit me in.

I have depression, ADHD, severe anxiety disorder and episode of Bipolar (doesn't happen often). I hope I fit in the right group.

Many of times, I have tried to reach out to friends or a group, they don't often understand what I'm going through. And often Facebook triggers my anxiety and moods so I often deactivate Facebook to destress for few days or weeks or whenever. People are very cruel on Facebook. Smh

I have a situation where I am really really really STRESSED and my depression has hit the bottom. I don't have anyone to talk to about my issues cuz I know they will be like Oh just pray about it or something like that. Often their answers just piss me off cuz it's not what I'm looking for.

It's getting scary that 2 celebrities Gia Allemand and Lee Thompson Young committed suicide last week. It's weird after their deaths, I been seeing a lot of signs say Suicide hotline. That's good the society is waking up and taking this seriously.

Anyway, I don't know If I'm in right board but I just wanted to type it all out. I don't know if this is active or not.

Welcome to the board. It's a kind of slow board but I'm trying to post regularly and hopefully it will pick up. I'm glad you joined. I am not officially diagnosed with ADHD but I talked to my psychiatrist about it and he agrees I probably have it but he won't treat me with ADHD meds due to my bipolar. It could make me manic and I get manic pretty easily so I wouldn't want to try it. Some of my meds seem to help me calm down so that helps.

As for FB, I rarely post anything on FB that is personal so I don't get too many negative comments or drama.

Hi to both of you.
I've been on the board a long time, but it's slow here. I hope it hops up a little.

Aaron - I have adhd, and a major depressive order. I'm on meds for the anxiety and depression. I never talk about things on fb either. No one is really supportive there, and I'm pretty sure most have no idea how any of it feels.
I find that this board is helpful to me, not so much because it's got a ton of traffic, but it REALLY helps for me to get it out somewhere. I think of it as throwing it out of my mind.
If you feel comfortable enough to talk about your situation, please know you'll find love and support here, and not too many people can even see anything private you share here.

Big hugs. I'm so sorry you're struggling right now!
