I’m 17 years old and I’ve been through more than most. About 3 years ago I started self harming and then about 2 years ago I attempted suicide. I’ve been in 4 different treatment hospitals 6 different times. I’ve attempted suicide so many times that I’ve lost count. 

Since then I have been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, and borderline personality disorder traits. My last hospital stay was from May 27 of 2013 to May 5 of 2014. I have not self harmed in a year and 10 months on July 6th of this year. I still have a long way to go, but I know I’m going to make it. God is there for me and maybe my experiences can give hope to others. My favorite quote is H.O.P.E- Hold On, Pain Ends… and I never forget to keep holding on anymore because I know there really is a light at the end of the tunnel. <3
