Hi, my name is Scout19!

I'm 19 and had just started uni in September but my mental health spiralled out of control and now I've had to come home again to try and get better. My two close friends have been great but they are moving on with their lives and so I can't see or talk to them as much as I'd like too. I was hoping to meet new people on here in similar situations or with similar pasts to try and feel slightly less alone.

    Hey welcome to the site :)

    I cant say i feel similar as i havent been to uni. But i do read that people, on here and just in general, that uni can make lots of people feel alone with all the changes - as well as - people going different directions in their life. And it does sound like a really hard thing but youre definetly not alone with feeling like that. 

    i hope we can help in some way.

    Welcome to the boards,

    " And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "
