I don't really want any advice. I guess I just want someone to talk to and relate to. TSR is more of a general website and I would rather not bombard people who come here for school related stuff with stuff like this. So are there any websites where people talk about that with others?

Ugh, don't. Mental health forums are usually a cesspool of idiots who will try to diagnose you with mental illnesses you don't have. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Tsr isn't just for school stuff, it has a mental health forum and a Mental health support society

Trust me, my brain has the "denial" option set on lock so it's not like I'm gonna think that I have something without going over it 1,000 times.

Sane has a mental health forum, but I believe you need to be 18 to join. Health unlocked is a health site and might have a mental health forum. Also the mix, but like here it's more of a young person site so doesn't necessarily have a full mental health focus. We do have a thread in the mental health section called the mental health support society (mhss) where people go to talk about mental health. It's got a different tone to the rest of the site and focuses on mental health.
And although we do get people talking about school and other things in the mental health section you can use it to talk about whatever mental health is for you and prehaps some people with similar ideas will come comment.

Do make sure that if you do find a mental health site it's a well moderated one with a decent community. Like Ciel has said they can sometimes attract some less than positive conversations and although I'm sure you can look out for yourself it's just not a nice situation to be in and can end up waring you down or sticking in your head.

I hope that helps. You might also be able to find in person or Facebook support groups.

Ciel gives a good warning. Maybe 'don't' is a bit far, but certainly be really careful with mental health communities online. In my experience, they don't always help, and can often make things far far worse. You can easily end up with a group of people all together.. all feeling awful.. all making each other feel worse.. all feeding off each other, and making each other even more isolated etc. Ive seen it multiple times on sites like here, tumblr, facebook, and other specific MH forums.

That's not to say that knowing other people who have MH problems isn't a good thing. Its great to know your not alone, and its great to talk to people who understand you...

But just go into MH communities knowing that by their very nature they have a greater chance of turning toxic then other communities, and you should be careful.

(Also, try and find one in person if you can. It mitigates a lot of the problems that online MH communities have.. even if it is more scary to go to at first)

Read what I wrote, where the hell am I complaining and dragging people down? All I wanna do is talk to people with similar issues. What do you have against that?
