Hi im Nikki, im 18 and have an alomst 6 month old daughter. i'm new to this group but not to depression. i've been struggling with depression since i was 13. i've been on and off medication and usually do okayy...i use to and sometimes catch myself cutting when my emotions consume me. i use to smoke and drink to relieve stress and emotions but i picked up cutting and have been doing tht since i was 15. i havent found any friends tht understand what it feels like to have depression. hoping i can find someone who can relate.
