    GAD and depression over here.

    I developed depression

    and anxiety at age 11, anorexia at age 8, after hurting myself for so long, I finally came out and told my mother at age 14. Now I'm in therapy and on psychiatric meds and I can finally say I'm living like a normal teenager should.

    I've been suffering from depression

    for a couple of years, but it's gotten very bad since last summer and I've started self harming. Whenever I try to tell my friends about having depression, they just say that it's exam stress and it feels like they don't care about me.

    If My Emotions Think They Can Control Me I Can Control My Emotions.

    I have Sensory processing disorder,

    ADHD, OCD, and Tourretes yet I honestly don't think that they stops from doing the same things other people do. I just wish everyone around me would stop acting like my disorders define my potential.

    Depression, anxiety, PTSD,

    and impulsivity... Sometimes I wish I could stay in bed forever... That the action has to come before the emotion when I am depressed. Which means I have to get out if bed until I start to feel better.
