Hey guys new here and happy to be here. I am 22 and I am from Ethiopia. One of the poorest countries in the world and one of the most religious too. It is not easy to be gay here. And it is impossible to even live when the rarest phobias in the world make you their home.
You see I was a regular Ethiopian kid from the towns growing up. I was one of the top students in my batch. I had straight A on national examination in 10th grade. Before that, I was the most ambitious, overwhelmed by what I expected this world had for me. 10th grade is when I was hit by depression and started living the nightmare I never encountered before. I thought the depression was the worst thing that could happen to me. When I was relieved from the chronic depression in the next year, I started to feel let's say gay. The interest for studying gone, I became the laziest student. At the same time I started to feel: I couldn't bear a touch from another person, male, female or a child. I read from Google it is called haphephobia. It is the worst feeling to hate to be touched for instant in a society that believes in hugging constantly and sleeping by 3 on one bed. And there are also some other problems that always remind me I should end my life. And those I couldn't even find them in Google. I feel like something is conspiring to make me dispose myself.
It would really be good for me to know if there is somebody else who suffers from the same problems I have. It could really make me feel it is not only me.

Hi Tina, and welcome to the forum.
I am really sorry to hear that you are going through this. I cannot say that I have had the same experience, but I have suffered from severe depression before. If possible, I think you should try and get professional help, at the very least in the sense of medication to help you with the depression so that you don't harm yourself.
