I’ve been self harming since I was 12 years old since my best friend died after killing herself. Loosing the one person to whom you can tell everything is too much to bear. Cutting myself was only the beginning of it. There is now no room left on my arms for anymore scaring and so I started to overdose on all types of medicines I could get hold of. Fortunately I was offered help although reluctantly I would accept it until I was ordered to by the court. I am now seeking help at a local rehabitation hospital although I am a long way away from being cured if that is the word to use. I just hope that everyone out there has at least someone to talk to about their problems, I know if I didn’t I wouldn’t be where I am today.
