Hello, I should give some context. I am a 13 yr old male struggling with year 7. My family is split and I live with my mum and my brother. I have clinical depression and currently fighting myself. With the still going events of 2020 it is a hard life, and have tried (on numerous accounts) suicide but I couldn’t go through. I am quite fat, have AD HD and spectral autism, and can often be found sleeping or gaming. So that is a little about me.

Its hard to experience intrusive thoughts that can accompany anxiety and depression I understand.

It doesn’t matter what we look like, what matters is who we are inside and that we give ourselves self love.
