New to the community here

Hey everyone, I'm new here and I don't really have any friends.
I've read some of the forums and everyone seems so welcoming of any type of disorder and it's a big help to know that there are people like yourselves out there.
I have Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), along with anxiety.
Introduce yourselves to me if you'd like (that'd be awesome). I'm hoping this website thing helps me out-my psychologist told me about this site.

Hey alvaa, thanks for the response!
Yea, everyone definitely seems supportive. I like that a lot. I know sometimes it's hard because it feels like there's no one there to talk to but this site feels like such a lifeline in more ways than one to me.

Hey there mammo and jcook! Thanks for the responses! I was just recently diagnosed with this and for a long time, I thought I was going crazy or something. It's so endearing to know that I'm not alone in this.
I've been struggling with mdd for 3 years and have had anxiety for as long as I can remember but have just recently sought professional help for them.

Hello,
Its great you joined this site.  I joined a few months ago and it really has helped me a lot! Especially cause the people are really non-judgemental and really are out there to post encouraging things to you.  I also have major depressive disorder and anxiety.  Ive had anxiety for 15 years (since i was about 2) and depression for 5-6 years.  Dont be afraid to post anything your concerned about! Were all out here to help.
