I've not really opened up about my issues to many people as I don't feel I can either explain it very well or that they understand. I suffer from anxiety and depression, a lot of days I just cannot cope. I have a lot of compulsions and self destructive tendencies - for example I pick the skin on my fingers to the point of bleeding, but that doesn't stop me from doing it. Literally any little thing can set me off and it can take me days to settle down again. Lately I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping so I'm exhausted on top of all my usual problems which is making me feel so much worse. I find myself feeling really lost a lot of the time and at a total loss as to what to do to help. I have joined Scope in the hopes of connecting with people who experience similar problems and can maybe offer some other tips/tricks to help the day to day be a little easier. Thanks for reading!
