Home Introduce Yourself

Hello :)

Hiya,
I'm AJ (she/her), I'm 18 (19 in 2 months!) and new! Have been looking around for a while and finally got the courage to join, even though I am still a little confused about how this all works... I hope that I can help out as much as be supported. 
A little bit about me... I am a first year uni student studying Classics and I love it (bit niche, I know). I also do quite a bit of ballet and dance en pointe. I have a rather odd sense of humour and am fully of the belief that its worth laughing rather than crying and think that's the main reason I am still coping! I have struggled with my mental health for around 7 years (depression, anxiety, self harm, hallucinations), have had a diagnosed eating disorder for almost a year and am being investigated for PTSD due to ongoing difficulties at home. Not a particularly great summary, but hey, that's me. :) 
I hope everyone is doing alright! 
Much love, 
AJ xx

    Hi @_AJ_

    Welcome to the boards! Big step to take the courage and join so well done, I hope you find these boards useful.

    Not sure if you already went through the boards but good sections to start is 'Start Here' and 'Help Desk'  . There you'll find some of the basics of the boards but if you have any particular questions you can just ask anyone.

    How have you found your first year of uni?

    Hey :) 
    Thanks for the welcome (and to you @Laine) and for the tips! Think I am mainly just trying to figure the most appropriate places to post certain things!
    It's been a bit of a whirlwind and cut sadly short (though I am looking into going back next term due to my home situation). I have been very unwell throughout and the support from NHS services just wasn't in place so it was a struggle, but I love my course and have made some good friends!

    Hey @Shaunie
    thanks :) I’m starting to muddle my way around I think! 
    Sorry to hear you struggle too. I’ve been a lot worse recently and am feeling really low with it. It’s triggered a lot of other problems too currently... 
    thanks- big Winnie the Pooh fan and thought it was sweet :)
