hi so i'm very new here and i just wanted some advice i guess. i'm a 19 year old girl, and i think i've been struggling with depression since i was about 11. i've had issues with very low mood, self esteem, self harm, anxiety (including social anxiety) and panic attacks, and just generally feeling awful most days. i've never sought help for it, i've always just sort of dealt with it on my own, through self harm or drinking alcohol usually. it's had a pretty big effect on me growing up, i am very quiet and reserved, i don't tend to go out much except to college, in the past year or so my short term memory hasn't been great either so i dont know if thats part of it. i think i'm at a point now where i would like to get help with it, but i really just don't know where to begin with it? i'm very scared, i'm not sure who i am without the depression, if it even is depression, and i feel very lost. i'd appreciate a little bit of support maybe, some advice about how to get help? i don't really know where to start, or what would happen to me if i didn't get help
