Hi there. Four years ago, I suffered from a severe bout of depression and anxiety and found this board. I also found two of my best friends here whom I have kept in contact with on a daily basis to this day, over 4 years later!
The board helped me through a terribly difficult time in my life. As awful as I was feeling, it was a bittersweet experience due to the healthboard. When I was at my lowest, I felt nothing but support. There was always someone there to listen, 24/7. I also learned a LOT about my disorder and occassionaly go back to offer MY support or to ask for advice, guidance, etc.
You'll find a variety of experiences and opinions here. Some you will like, some you won't and this is why I think it's so great! It makes you think and makes the world feel a little smaller!
