    It's like I can't live without pain anymore. I've been self harming for about 5 years now, mainly cutting but not only (because it leaves scars - but I get to frustrated when they fade). Now, the only times I don't self harm are when i'm either sore all over from sports or I get my monthly stomach cramps. I would love to do some kind of sport every day. But I can't because I still go to school and that's what I'm expected to do. I am also supposed to go working to get money so I could buy myself a new bass guitar or go out to do stuff with friends and go to games with my softball team, plus my favorite cousin's wedding is coming up. If I don't pay for that, my sister will pay for me. Which is awesome, but just reminds me what a failure I am. She has straight A's, tutors kids, plays 2 instruments, is awesome at sports and is everyone's favorite person amongst our relatives. She also always has money. And aside from also playing 2 instruments, I have nothing of that. What's worst is that she is my younger sister. I just feel so fucking worthless and useless nad like such a failure. I can't even simply stop cutting. Which brings me to tomorrow - it's Self Harm Awareness Day tomorrow and I am going to to go school, without covering my scarred wrists, drawing butterflies on my arms and wearing an orange ribbon. But I'm so afraid. Some people know I cut. Quite a few actually. They either all yelled at me for it or they didn't show any interest of my well being at all (except for my best friend - who sadly lives half-way across the planet and doesn't have time for me lately (like the last few months)). So, I don't know how the school will react. But I just want to be happy. I want to get better. That is why I'm showing my scars. To try and change something so that maybe something will get better. I am doubting it though. Because I have changed so much about my life and still I am quite suicidal, depressed and I self harm. I gather all my courage, put myself out there, do stuff I don't really want to, stand through it all and yet it doesn't change a thing. I still cry at night, I still feel so alone, the darkness is still there.

    Have you sought professional help? If you have trouble making progress id def recommend it, finding the right support can make all the difference.

    yeah. i got prof help about two years ago for the first time - medication and therapy. then i refused both of those after half a year. half a year ago, i went back to therapy but it didn't really help i guess because i ended up in a clinic for suicide watch last week. i'm going to go to a different therapist and they want to try new medication.
    i have no idea what to think or do anymore.
