My whole life has been one big annoying roller-coaster. I was a victim of child abuse. At 18 months old I was put in foster care and now at 15 years old I've been with my family for about 12 years and this means a lot but I still have depression. I'm stressed all the time and nothing can change that. Hoping the site could help me..:confused:

    Have you spoke to your foster family? Have you been able to get access to professional support?

    Hi :-)
    Do have any access to counselling services? Treatment for mental health for people.can often be most effective with a combination of medicine and therapy

    Hope you get better soon xx

    Hey Live Laugh Love,

    Warm welcomes to TheSite.org message boards :wave: - You've been through an awful lot, but it's great to see you are reaching out for support on here, and being able to post a bit about your experiences. You said 'Nothing can change that' - It sounds like you have quite a negative attitude to whether recovery is possible, yet you've come on here and posted showing an aspect off wanting support, or even share your own experiences with others. I think recovery (If you wanted to take that route) would be possible, but it has to be you who takes the action to getting better, getting the support etc.

    Have you ever spoken about how you're feeling to anybody else offline? For example GP? Teacher? Etc?

    Do let us know how you're getting on,
    Best wishes,
    WhispersOfTheHeart :heart:
