  • my story

    This is my first blog post to this site and I`m a little nervous to any reactions I may or may not get, but uh here we go. I started self harming at the age of seventeen, I had several injuries, I started using S.I as a way to feel anything other than sadness and…

  • Loss

    O.k., so I found out from a friend of mine who sees my therapist that my therapist is retiring.  I’m sure she will tell me herself at our next session in a couple weeks.  I have been seeing her for probably close to six years now.  She is a large part of the reason I…

    So, I’m now in college. Today was my first day, and I loved my classes. I’ve made two good friends and two others I see around campus. I’ve been having a blast living on campus and away from my home. The downside is that I’ve been hurting myself every day since I’ve moved in. I…

  • College and Rules

    I’m tirelessly waiting to start college in the fall, even though I’m terrified about what might happen when I go. I’m already mentally preparing for the stress of classes and being away from home for so long, but there’s a no weapon policy for the campus. How will I survive for a whole semester without…
