    I have had six suicide attempts and four hospitalizations in the past year and a half. I also used to cut. My last attempt and hospitalization was in January. Since I got out, I've been trying to fix my life and move on from all this. However, a lot of people around me are very unhelpful. After I got out of the hospital, people at my school began bullying me(they know because my attempt was in the school-I was taken out in handcuffs with my wrist bleeding), following me in the halls calling "crazy" after me and other such stuff. When I told my parents and they talked to the guidance counselor, the guidance counselor said that because of my "illness" I was misinterpreting "normal teenager behavior". Also, my left forearm and wrist are covered in scars and people usually ask about them. I don't want people to keep labeling me as "crazy" or "sick" so I don't want to tell people, but it's pretty obvious that I made them. How do I get people to understand I want to keep what's in the past in the past?

    Kids can be so cruel...it seems that in their effort to not look at themselves, they torture others...the best way to get ppl to understand anything is to tell them in a way that shows you are comfortable with who you are and desire to move forward...we change minds one person at a time...if you have a MySpace page or such, that would also be a good place to blog how far you have come...another suggestion is to have a wise adult in your corner....thay way there is someone to support you and with whom you can bounce off ideas and strategies...glad you are doing better and remember, you have to focus on your well-being, no matter what ppl say or do, you are going to be OK...big hugs, J
