Hi
« on: September 26, 2018, 12:51:59 AM »
Hi all
I'm pretty new to forums but am looking for a safe space to talk with other people who struggle with the same things as me. I've gone back to fake smiles and hiding how I feel to appear to be ok to those around me as it's easier than telling them I'm struggling again. Does anyone else feel that way? I dunno, I'm just looking for better ways to keep myself safe.

I am pretty good at hiding my emotions. I struggle to even cry if I'm honest. Just looking to talk to people who don't know me and I don't need to wear a mask for.

Thank you both.
I'm 30 years old and have been self harming for 17 years.  I have recently struggled with ptsd from a sexual assault.

I am 32. We are all different ages here with different problems. But we all have similarities too and strive to help each other.

It is indeed. Don't forget to check out the off topic threads also as distraction is also important.
