Stories of Hope
The Other Side
Hi... I have been self harming since I was 12. I am 20 now and
I think I am almost OK. I haven't self harmed for almost a year. I have a lovely
fiancée and I am doing OK. It has been really hard and it still is- I think
that I will always have to fight against it- but it does get easier by the day.
The thing that I want to tell people is to have friends- friends that you can
talk to. I do not have friends to share my 'down' moods with and gain support- I
have to do it by myself- and that is hard.
In the end it is yourself who can pull you out, and you alone, but people who will support you and help you up are a big help.
