Hmm...I'm not really sure what to say here. Obviously, I go by Akel and I struggle with suicide and self-harm. I've been self-harming since I was 11 for any number of reasons. I just started seeing a therapist after a close call, but I found it hard to stay afloat between sessions, so I started looking for a place where I could just talk with people without fear of judgement. I'm hoping that this is that place. Not sure what else to say. I'm in university although I'm considering taking a leave of absence. I like reading and watching movies. Today, I decided that silence hurts more than it's worth. I want to change.
