I have been self injuring myslef ever since the 6th grade. That was the year my best friend moved away and I made a terrible mistake that made people dislike me. That is when it started. It started as a way vice. I didn’t know how to heal my pain so I S.I. instead. I am in the 8th grade now and it has almost become in addiction. I don’t know how to stop and am so afraid. I seem like a very happy, lovable 13 year old girl, but I have so much pain and angered bottled up inside of me that it seems to be easier to just S.I. I am desperately seeking a way to stop.
