I am 14 and I struggle with Self Harm
Hello my name is Jeff, I am a 14 year old basketball player always happy or what I thought was being happy. One day it was about 5:00 in the morning I walk down the hall and find a blade lying on the counter calling me to cut. At first I walk away but, seem to keep walking back towards the blade. I look left to right then cut to fast for me to not feel the pain for awhile but soon blood comes dripping down. I hide it with a band-aide for a while. The next couple of weeks I look at my arm and I have 25 cuts on my wrist. Yelling at me is my mother who is freaking out at the sight of the blood. She takes me to a therapist that I talk to often. The next months go by, depression starts to sink in and cause me to attempt suicide twice, nothing happened. I choked my self so I could finally go to sleep but, I only was shaken awake from my farther. Another month goes by another 25 cuts. One time I cut to deep I had to get stiches and some extra blood just in case. I guess you can say I'm still going through this I don't want you guys to feel bad for me but, I don't want any of you guys to go through this.
