I’m Joost, I’m 18 years old and I don’t really have any mental illness/disorder. I do have a very low self esteem though.
I’m currently studying Application Development (software development) and in my free time I love to program, test my websites for security flaws and listen to music. I’m also very much against Microsoft and Apple.
Nice to meet you all!

Hello I’m 20 and currently struggling with multiple chronic illnesses and more tests. I go to college and I want to be a nurse. I feel like i have lost a sense of self, a sense of who i am, identity, and my independence. I am doing the best I can, and after losing many people because they didn’t understand and walked away. I’ve realized that is the best thing I can do. Stay Strong spoonie friends <3 feel free to add me and i will add you back, also my tumblr is positive and spoonie like, Littlelittlexo Thank you for reading <3

I’m Ray, 24, living with end stage renal failure. I’m on dialysis 3 times week, until I get the big call for the transplant operation to end the treatments.
Hey @Raymond, nice to meet you and have you here
That honestly sounds really sucky, I’m sorry you have to live with that, but you’re strong for fighting and carrying on
Hi just joined the group.
My name is Toni, I’m 19, and I deal with permanent tendonitis/progressive nerve damage, chronic migraine, and fibrocystic breasts on top of other mental/physical disorders that I inherited.
Over the past few months, I’ve been losing a lot of motivation to do things, even eat, but I’m a fighter no matter how bad the pain and mood swings get…but that doesn’t mean I don’t need a little encouragement now and then.
Nice to meet you guys!
I am new to this group, but glad I found you all.
I have battled with Chronic pain since 2009 most of which was doctors, tests, lost hope, and shots in the dark. I am 25 and have Fibromylagia,I am not ready to accept this as my life, since I just got this diagnosis a few months ago. Please message me on here with your story, I would be willing to listen and to be supportive, since I pretty much know how it feels to be alone in this fight….. and to feel as if no one understands
<3 Hang in there Everyone!
