I'm new here, I have severe mental illness from drug abuse, the symptoms of which are mostly depression, anxiety, anhedonia, and depersonalization. I'm on meds, and I know they'll help me, but there's been so many roadblocks that have slowed things down. I always get so close to a better place, to being myself and feeling like a human normally does..
The hardest part is that no one in my life has any idea what this is like. I'm here to find people with similar struggles, even to just talk about anything. Just having a friend who knew what was going on with me would be so helpful.
