I'm new

Hi. My name is Mele and I am 16 years old. I was diagnosed with body dysmorphia, dysthymia(mild depression), and mild anxiety when I was 11 when I was hospitalized for attempted suicide. I went to therapy for about 5 months before moving to a different country. My parents aren't around a lot and so after the short period of help, I was back on my own. It's been 5 years since that and today I'm not any better. I have hard time opening up to people irl and I hope I can use this site to connect with others and as an outlet. Thanks
