I am the moderator, bee_york, and I'm here to (try to) help. This is a place where anyone and everyone should feel free to post about their problems or experiences with depression, OCD, and/or any other kind of psychological disorder. As a sufferer of OCD and manic depression, I have decided to try and help people and try to prevent anyone else from suffering the way I have. While I certainly may not be able to solve your problems, I will hopefully be able to offer some insight, or at least be able to point you in the right direction for where you might be able to receive the help you seek. Please keep in mind that I am NOT a doctor nor psychologist nor therapist, nor is anyone posting here (to my knowledge). Please remember to read with an open yet critical mind and never ever ever start/stop/change medication without speaking to a doctor first!
The great thing about this being a community is that if I can't help, perhaps someone else can. Anyone is welcome to post here. I've decided to make this a Montreal-centered community because I have hopes that perhaps I could plan meet-ups in the future. Of course, you do not need to be from Montreal or living in Montreal in order to join or post here. :)
I hope that this becomes a place where people can talk about their problems without fear of being judged, whether it's just to get things off their chest, vent, rant, or to seek advice or hear from others with similar experiences. If you have any questions whatsoever, please feel free to message or e-mail me.
Take care and take comfort; you are NOT alone.
