I'm mentally ill
« on: August 03, 2021, 02:59:20 PM »
I feel like I can't fit in anywhere. I'm only 20 yrs old and I feel like an outcast everywhere

I'm just too weird to fit in anywhere

<---- Not a doctor or therapist

In your intro thread you mentioned you were autistic. What kind of support groups for autistic adults have you tried?

I haven't tried any. Too afraid of embarrassment

Going to need to start somewhere, rhythm. Mental illness can be a setback but it’s not a death sentence. I’ve been a teacher for over 30 years myself. There’s people with mental illness in all walks of life. You need a good doctor and some good meds and patience with yourself. You can do this.

The first step has to be yours. Don’t stop before you even start. Give yourself a break. Everyone needs a boost sometimes and lots of people need a boost more often. It’s not an embarrassment to want help, that is a sign of understanding you could use a hand. There are a lot of organizations who are there to do just that. They want to help. They WANT to help. Let them.

Aye, what these lads said. Give it a shot if you can. Improving your life means trying to better for yourself everyday, because you are worth it. Acknowledge yourself what you need.
