Well, I started SI when I was 14 for a while. I ended up telling my parents and was able to get out of it. I’m 16 now and this past little while I’ve been really down. I never really realized until now that depression is a real struggle for me. Unfortuneatly, I got into the SI and now I associate my depression with it and the two go hand in hand. I had a little episode a few days ago. I have a good friend that I’m confiding in and she’s helping me. I really do not want to do it again and have to lie to her. But at the same time I’m having a really hard time not doing it. I really do not want to fall into this trap again.
