    Hey everyone :)

    This is the first time I've ever joined an online forum. I'm 22 and am recovering from an eating disorder. I've also recently been diagnosed with depression and experience a lot of anxiety at times as well. I decided to join because it's something totally different to what I would normally do and I need to start breaking my habits of internalising my feelings and silencing myself. I'm looking forward to connecting with a group of people with a shared experience and practicing vulnerability.

    Peach xx
