Hi, I'm new so I'm sorry if I'm in the wrong place... I was just wondering if there are any adults here? I started SI at 15, but now I'm 21 and have just recently started again. I'm finding that I kind of want to reach out for help, but even worse than the need to hide my SI that I've always had, is the embarrassment that really, I am way, way too old to be dealing with my problems in this way. I really hope that someone here is in a similar situation and can reassure me.
I'm also kind of concerned about if I end up in a sexual situation with someone... I mean, it would be impossible to hide then, right? I don't know what to do/think/say. I feel like I'm being so immature.

You'll find people of all ages on here, I'm 38, sometimes I think I'm too old for this but there is no upper age limit on feeling distress and coping in these ways.

Courage does not always roar.
Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow".

20 here.

I dare say the number of "adults" here far outstrips the number of people in their early/mid teens.

23 married mother welcome :hug1: xx
behind closed doors, all is not what it seems,
you only have to realise with one look at me.
to see things that you didnt first see,
like the person i once was-i use to be.
behind closed doors is where it will remain,
now her sanity is gone she is no longer sane.
