"Hi there,

Welcome to the boards. Hope you gind it more helpful.

Its hard to find support, sorry that no one will take you to see your gp/doctor i am not sure if this is the same for you but you are aload to book doctors appointments without your parents being there and you can attend them unacccompanied.

Depression and other illness can be quite scary especially when your quite young. Do have a look round the site there are lots of useful articles and information on here.

You are not alone.

Sunday to thursday we have support chats and general chats on at 8pm till 9:30pm if you would like to join them. They are a great way to get to know people and seak support at the same time. Heres the link to the page -

Hope to see you round

  • A poem about starting to move forward.

    I sit here typing trying to find the right words,
    The words to describe what itís been like all those years,
    But as my fingers hit the keys,
    I find that my mind just wonders free.

    Everything that happened has gone and been,
    Theres no point looking and trying to intervene,
    All the pain, the fear, the guilt, the need.
    All the stuff that you can not see,
    Is sealed within and wonít get free,

    For now itís time to believe,
    To stop the flee,
    And see
    That the future can be anything you want it to be.

    (A poem about moving forward. Am not sure if I've let go yet or if I've forgiven the abuse from my mother or the bullies from school, but I think am starting to be ok a little and it's ok because it's just a little, I don't need to be all ok just yet or let go of it all)

        I wrote a poem once. Not about me, it was about a girl I knew. About her real scars and her hidden ones, and about how she only ever broke people's hearts because she never knew what it was like to have an unbroken one. She killed herself soon after. She never read the poem, I don't know where it is so I can't share it, sorry.

        Anyway, yours was very nice
        Tough times never last, but tough people do

                Yeah I know, I think I'm finally getting over it. Well, accepting it anyway.
