Well, I’ve been injuring for about 2 years now. I’m 16 years old and I’m in high school. My uncle francis died on 12/14/02 and this time of year always gets to me horribly. I recently became friends with this girl, and I told her when I first met her about it. I didn’t want to lie to her about it like I did to all of my other friends, I wanted my relationship with her as friends to be honest and truthful. Yet now I end up lying to her. I had quit everything for 1 week, all the ways that I injure, everything. But now I’m back to it again, and I need to hide it from her. I just recently told her I quit everything, and she believed me, so I guess it’s good for now. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m bipolar, or whatever. But I get depressed randomly throughout the day, and I don’t know if this happens to many people, but I have been getting alot of negative thoughts. The thoughts are so re-occuring and their really getting to me lately. I wish desperately to stop them, but I can’t. My parents know that I have had a pest of injuring, because my mom found a few injuries about a year ago, and I had to go to some 48 Hour thing at a hospital because they thought that I was trying to attempt suicide. So I can’t go to my parents for help. Whenever I talk to the new girl I met, I get depressed, and I don’t know why. It’s completely ruining the friendship between me and her. I can’t talk to her for more than a half hour without getting depressed. I don’t know what to do.
