  • Angry

    Does anyone else injure when they’re angry?  I am so angry at my husband right now…I want to scream, and attack him, and injure.  None of these things are effective, I know, but I have no idea how to get my anger out in a healthy way.

  • I got this news

    I got this news today.  It’s supposed to be good news.  And it is, sort of.  But it’s scary and overwhelming, too.  My husband got a job.  In Iowa.  My home is in North Carolina.  I’ve been here for 10 years.  It’s what I know.  It’s where I’m safe.  It’s where my therapist is.  And…

  • hard time

    I’m just having a hard time right now, and I don’t know why.  I feel like I need to cry, but I don’t know about what.  I don’t want to hurt myself, but I don’t know how to release the emotion built up inside me.

  • Some days are harder than others

    Some days (and nights) are just harder than others!  I have strong urges to s.i. today, but I am determined to stay safe.  I get to see my therapist tomorrow, and I know I’ll feel better after I talk to her…but tomorrow feels like a long way away. I’m glad you all are here…I feel…

  • Checking in

    Hi Everyone, I just wanted to check in.  I was really struggling last night b/c I was hit with a lot of bad news yesterday.  It turns out that I have an STD from when I was raped back in December.  That just burns me up.  And I also found out my 3 yr. old…

  • My heart hurts for us all

    Since I have found this blog I have been checking it two or three times a day and reading everyone’s stories.  I “see” such beautiful young women here (myself included) filled with so much pain.  My heart aches for all of you, and the suffering you are experiencing.  I wish I could send hugs through…

  • I’m new and I think I really need this

    Hi Everyone, I’m new to this site.  I’m 30 years old and I still struggle with self-harm of many forms.  I started when I was just a kid, like 7 or 8 years old.  I have a history of sexual and physical abuse by multiple perps.  If I could warn young people about the danger…
