I am 16 and I struggle with Depression
My Name is Hailey. Since I was 10 I've struggled with self harm. I quit doing it regularly one year ago, but I do relapse frequently. Since then I've struggled with depression, and attempted suicide 3 times. I'm bulimic, and anorexic, for a little over a year now. I've been abused my whole life but I believed I deserved all that. At the age of 9 I was raped by my father, and he's done it twice since. Later that year his ex's son began to rape me as well, and he brought friends… I started to struggle with anxiety too at the age of 13 and I still struggle with panic attacks. I struggle with all of this, but hope and the project semi colon book have helped me to hold on. Not a day goes by that the Abuse from both my parents gets worse, and the Abuse from myself. But I will survive.
