    ...erm, i'm not quite sure what to say here. I've never really been good at talking.. that's part of the problem I think. Ok here goes....

    I'm a 20 year old girl, still living at home (for now, big part of problem). I've self harmed since I was about 13/14 and when my mother found out she laughed in my face and said I was attention seeking... so as you may have guessed i have no support there. I've had the self harming under control for a while now, have only 'relapsed' once or twice. . . recently I find myself getting close to that again and it scares me. I don't like the person I became when I got like that.

    I have attempted suicide twice, when i was 15 and 16. When I was 17 I almost attempted it again but was 'stopped' by a very well timed phone call from a friend. Since all the bad thoughts and feelings have been building up I have been having more and more suicidal thoughts. Let me just say that I DON'T want to die... but I can't see a way of living like this anymore.

    So yeah, that's me. There's a whole lot more to my story but I think that's enough for an introduction. Gives you an idea of why i'm here in the first place.

    hi. i am glad you reached out to us, sweetie. i have two daughters, (teen and a pre-teen) and i can't imagine laughing and saying they were 'attention-seeking' if they had a problem! poor you.

    it is so positive that you are trying not to harm yourself, and that you reached out to s.f. there are a lot of caring people here, and we all understand how it feels to not know HOW to keep living in our situations.

    i care what happens to you. . keep in touch here. :hug:
