Hi. My name's Charlotte. I'm 26 years old and live in London and have struggled with depression/emetophobia/anxiety/OCD since I was 13 years old. Through my struggle I isolated myself from friends and many of them were scared away at the fact I had a mental health condition. I have since found it very hard to make friends and come across people who have had similar experiences and have similar interests. So this group is for anybody who feels the same and is looking for friends :)
Hi, I'm trying to gather people into one group that are in the North West of the UK. I'd really like to try and meet up in the future for day trips but unsure just how many people are up North? Please join this group!!! In need of some good friendship.. Particularly over the summer as I hibernate in the winter and the sunny days go very fast! .. xx Thank you.
For anyone with an unlimited card or just close to a Cineworld to meet up and see movies.

Hi I am new here and i thought I would give this a go to meet new people that have depression that me
This is about depression and anxiety, worry and feelings of guilt. Sometimes this world can be a lonely place, and the felling that no one cares or understands how you fell. Felling Lost, Confused and Indecisive can make you fell what's the point of being here trapped. Also I have discovered that an issue I have since a young age still here and I'm aware of it now, it makes more sense. It's called - Body Dysmorphic Disorder - http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/body-dysmorphia/Pages/Introduction.aspx An eg: ocd/obsession + anorexia it can be similar to body dysmorphic disorder.
Looking for like minded friends in and around west Yorkshire. Just to chat or meet up If possible. Please come and say Hi. Jamie
