I’m really glad that you were able to come back and give us an update about what’s going on for you right now. It sounds like your circumstances haven’t shifted too much on the outside but that you’re using self-harm as a way to cope with everything in your life. It’s really scary to hear that self-harm might be a step in the direction of ending your life and I really want to invite you to keep visiting us here and on our nightly chat service (6-11pm PST) for more support.
I can hear that suicide is still definitely on your mind these days and that you haven’t been able to open up to your parents about those thoughts inside your head. We are here to support you through these dark times and to listen to whatever you need to say here. I can really sense how much you want your parents to recognize your pain through your scars, as if them noticing would tell you that they love and pay attention to you, and that maybe if they were to notice then something could begin to shift for you.
I wonder if there is anyone else in your life that you might share your scars with and open up to about what’s been going through your head about ending your life?
Take good care of yourself Bri and know that you are in our thoughts
The Support Team
