Here is a brief introduction of myself:
I've been diagnosed with Psychotic Depression 3 years ago. I have been suffering from depression since I was 8 and from psychosis since I was 12. I finally started to receive help when I was 18. I've only been in the psych ward one time when I had my mental breakdown. Since then I've been on numerous medications, both anti-depressants and anti-psychotics, as well as anti-anxiety drugs. I still occasionally hear voices and suffer from depression even while on medications. I have not given up hope that although I know I'll take years to fully recover, that I'll one day be free of this mental illness and finally off my medications safely.
I am very much looking forward to meeting new people who are going through the same problems I am encountering. So please join and make yourself at home! :)
