Hello, my name is Katy. I struggled very hardly with SI and manic depression. I started when I was fourteen due to some seriuous family problems, I felt really alone. Along with some of you, I started for attention, but moved on to doing it for enjoyment. I have gone to a hospital, and seen people way worse then me. It hurts me too see all of your pictures on this site, to know I once felt this way. I was alone, and in a dark world. I felt like I had no one. I’m very lucky I did not kill myself all those times I’ve tried. I had to realise I was not the only one in this world hurting. So I took my pain and helped people I knew going threw the same thing, I got help and went on medication, and have been on it for three years now. I’m very glad that I listened and took the meds, beacuase my life has changed, and I’m actually very happy. All of you guys could be too. It’s hard to think of being happy when you’re at that point I know, I’ve been there. But there is a future if you let yourself get that far, I know it’s hard to ask for help. But please do. Everyone’s there for you, but it’s hard to see when you’re so sad.
Today I do not cut anymore. I still have scars, but they’re going away as the years pass by. I’m going to college soon, and have a good job. And I opened up to friends instead of shutting them out. And now I have friends that love me.
I’m here if anyone has any questions, or needs help getting through your day.
