I am an 18 year old freshman in college and am going to be a nurse, that is my greatest passion. I am very independent, but I dont think I can deal with this by myself. I look forward to getting to know you all.

Well done on telling those close to you, it can be incredibly hard to do that! Can understand that this would also be difficult to deal with, so am glad that you found this place, people here understand
There's several ways you can start to use this forum,
by reading others posts and maybe replying to some if that feels right
by starting to post in less upsetting threads first eg, healing tips, simply life, humour and silliness
By posting in gathering place and asking for support
by posting your story in the Share Your Story forum, this requires 10 posts or else asking a mod for the password, some people like to do this first, some people (me included) never post here
All the best and hope to see you around
