    hello

    I go by Gypsy, I'm a 21 year old college junior majoring in History and Theatre Production.

    I've struggled with Social Anxiety and Depression since I was about 13, though I was never officially diagnosed and started any type of medication until I was 19. I've tried therapy but obviously, I had issues opening up with a total stranger - "safe space" or not. I just recently transferred colleges and will be attending a large scale university where I honestly don't know a soul and it's been making my anxiety a thousand times worse. Add on that I don't have many people I can go to about things, especially after recently coming out about my sexuality, I figured I need a place with a bit more anonymity. Soooo here I am.

    Every-thing's-com-ing-up-ro-ses-for-you-and-for meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    OOOH! I watched that musical on TV with my mom and grandmother - what a treat! It was the first one I had ever seen....the same one my mom went to Chicago to see when she was in high school when it first came out!
    Gypsy Rose Lee was Hungarian like me, too! Did you know that her sister Baby June died at age 90 just a few years ago! What a story!

    Anyway - best of luck and welcome!!!
