Hi everyone! My name is Michelle, I’m 17 years old (will be 18 on the 11th of this month! ^_^) and about to graduate High School. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in about 4th or 5th grade, and have always struggled with depression and anxiety because of it. More or less I’m self-diagnosed. My doctor will prescribe anti-depressants to me but I’ve never actually heard her say, “You have depression.” It usually comes in bouts, up until about a couple of months ago when it wasn’t really going away. It began messing with my schoolwork and relationships but it took me a long while to muster up the courage to tell someone and get help. I hope this site will be of great support to me as I start the next chapter of my life. If you want to know anything else just ask! I'm always ready to talk.

Thank you! Hope to talk to you all soon.
