    i cut again. this time on my shoulder.
    ...i don't like how it feels.
    it's more like an annoying sunburn more than anything.


    yup, another (however short) streak ruined.
    ...i wish i could not feel as i do about certain things.
    i'm obviously nowhere near getting over my abuse.

    alas. be heartened, however! the sun also rises.

    there's another 'day 1' tomorrow...

    Hey Henry, how is your shoulder now? Be sure to keep it clean etc to prevent the infection. At the end of the day I'm sure you know self harm solves nothing. It gives us a temporary pain, a temporary relief and when that relief is gone we are back to square one again and the cycle of self harm continues. Have you considered therapy to talk about the abuse? It is a big step but it can be worthwhile. Do you have anyone else you can talk to about it? Take care of yourself.
