I am 19 years old and have been struggling with mental disorders since childhood. I am above all things, critically nyctophobic (the fear of the dark/nightfall.) I will probably be making a more detailed post about my struggles with the darkness in the phobic topic, but as far as introductions go, that's who I am. I have managed to keep my fear in check and out of the public's eye for many years, but could not keep my personal life and my work/school lives separate anymore once I moved across the country for college. For the first time in my life, I have had to tell people about my fear and, not being used to short winter daylight hours, my grades and work performance suffered greatly, not to mention a non-existent social life. I'm going to go back to school for a my second year and after a long time of wrestling with my problems, I have decided it's time I face them. While I know this is a long term project, I figured it's about time to start.

I'd love to hear other stories as well. The journey is always easier with company.
