Stories of Hope

It's Not over Yet

I started cutting when I was 13.  I don't know what triggered it.  I was never abused or hurt in anyway.  I thought that I was just crazy because I hated myself.  I never realized that there were people just like me.  I thought that everyone who self harmed had a reason.

I finally got some help.  I talked to my counselor at school and she helped me tell my Mom even thought I wasn't sure if I wanted to.  I was enrolled in therapy once a week.  When things didn't get better I was admitted into the hospital for 5 days.  They never changed my meds, only added a new one. (That didn't help at all). Eventually me dumbass doctor decided to change me to Zoloft which I've been on for about 2-3 weeks.  I have seen a huge improvement.  I want to do things with my friends, I have stopped wearing 2x sweatshirts when I need a small.  I know that this isn't over and I will probably have to deal with this for the rest of my life, but I haven't cut in about a week so it's getting better.  I'm not "cured", but I think I'm "coming back".
