Why is it that “S.I. have to be stereotyped? They stereotype us a being psycho, insane, crazy, just in need of attention, and even not normal.I hate the one that says we’re just in need of attention because I’m like if I wanted attention there’s a whole lot of other things I could have did besides S.I.. And then how could you say I’m “not normal” just because the only outlet is S.I..The truth is we’re as normal as can be we just weren’t taught a way to deal with our stress and problems so this is our way.                                                                   I think that all that bs about “us” being crazii nd s*** is just a way for people to try to put a title on us because they don’t know what else to say. I do have a serious problem and I try my best not to si but it’s NOT that easy. I can’t just be like oh, Jeanie stop harming yourself cause that’s bad and expect me to be able to just stop. I am as normal as anyone else, si is like a disorder. I was never taught how to control my emotions, like what to do when I feel sad, or need somebody to talk to therefore I’ve resorted to my own methods. I have true feelings and many of us have experienced sonething that no one would understand unless they went through it.And sometimes people think if they went through EVERYTHING I ever went through that I had experieced in my life then they would understand me.I come to say that that’s complete bs.Express your feelings……………………………
