Hi. I'm Sara. I live in a mental hospital. I've been here for 14 months, and things are feeling more and more hopeless. I've struggled with self-harm, eating disorders, dissociative identity disorder, PTSD, and depression for years. I've been in and out of therapy since I was 5 and in and out of hospitals since I was 16. Nothing really seems to help in the long term...I always end up suicidal again. Aside from all that fun stuff, I'm a writer, a knitter, and a sci-fi geek. I'm addicted to crossword puzzles and Diet Coke, and I love to climb trees. Thunderstorms make me happy, and my money gets spent on yarn and books. I played a singing hippo in my first grade class play, and ever since then I've collected hippos. So, yeah, that's me. Hi.
