Feeling Lonely Sucks

I feel lonely so much of the time now. Even in a house full of family members I can feel lonely. Night time always seems to bring it out more and sometimes, as I'm sitting or lying in bed, all I want is for my mom or sister to come snuggle me and make me … Continue reading Feeling Lonely Sucks

Taking Care of Myself When Vacation Ends

Vacation was great. Really and truly great. But what happens when it's over? When you drive for three days to get back home, you finally get there, and your mood drops incredibly fast?

I was having serious self-harm urges. I wanted to cut. Badly. I was struggling, making plans to self harm, and felt like I was … Continue reading Calling a Crisis Line
