I’m 16. since I was 13, I started self-mutilation. I was too young to understand what was happening around me. I did not know I was starting to deal with depression and disorders. When I was 15 I knew I was never a normal girl. I met the first girl I loved and the girl “save” me. She was awesome. We started dating. But we broke up and I was never the same. I started with an eating disorder and my depression came with such force. I was sleeping 20/day. She never loved me the way I loved her … I started drinking heavily, doing stupid things to get away from my own darkness, my own mind. And then I tried to kill myself four times in two months, I did not eat anything, so I think it would be easy. My parents do not care and they do not know. I was cutting me 8 times in a day. My legs have so many scars I’m ashamed to put a bikini. I think for me 1 month ago and see how much I improved. It is not easy. I can not tell you that I did not harm me, or tell you that I do not starve myself, I can not tell you that I have not skipped a meal, or do I not bleed me. But I can tell you that I feel stronger than ever. I feel so strong now, you know? as I am a warrior and feeling like I could do anything I want. I’m stronger than I’ve ever been. I do not want to feel sad again. Wake up in your own feelings of sadness is amazing. I tattooed “warrior” to remind me all the time that I won my own battles. I did not win the war, but I won so many battles. Nothing is impossible now. Life is amazing!
