Hi my name's Loren but I go by Elle Zee. I suffer from mild depression and social anxiety disorder as well as general anxiety. I signed up to this because initially I called a runaway helpline and they referred me to this website. I'm struggling a lot at the moment as my mother loathes my best friend, who has helped through everything I've gone through, and my mother has forced me to choose between living under her roof or staying friends with my best friend. However I've also been forced to distance myself from my best friend as I've fallen in love with him and as much as he makes me happy, laugh and feel whole, he has also caused me so much pain and grief and a lot of my emotional anxiety. Although I'm surrounded by friends who love me and caring adults at school, I still feel so alone as none of them seem to understand. This year hasn't been the best to me and I'm hoping from here there might be some who understand. 

Thank you,

    Heyy Loren welcome!

    sorry to here about what brought you here though. I hope we can help in some way. And can try to understand and relate. Youre def not alone in the way you feel. And many people feel alone no matter how many people they can be with cause being alone and feeling alone are different things and i can understand that feeling as many others. 

    If you wanna speak more about all that. You could maybe make a post on sex and relationship or the health and wellbeing section. So more people will specifically reply to these
    I've learnt two people can look at the exact same thing and see something completly different.

    Welcome on board, @ellezee. :) Really glad you found us, and I hope you get what you need here.

    As @Shaunie said, feel free to make a dedicated thread about what's going on for you in a relevant Support Topics forum. Good to see you posting.

    just because you're not doing something perfectly, doesn't mean you're not doing it

    Welcome to the forum @ellezee! It's really positive you've taken this step to reach out for support here. Everyone here is so lovely and understanding and I hope we can help offer you some support. We're all here to listen and help you through this <3
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤
