So, last night I was in a very dark place. I was going to self harm for the second time. The first time was this month but is was just me crying really hard and dragging my nails across my skin so I don't know if that counts??? I was trying to find a pencil sharpener but I got distracted by Loom-bands. Them small rubber bands that you can make into different jewellery. I'm so glad I did because I don't know how I would cover up the cuts.

I also have another question, if you consider suicide or self harm are you depressed? I'm really confused. Am I just... I'm not sure.

After frustration for an additional 9 months, you will develop paranoia where you can look at someone else and your mind is telling you that they are talking about you. Even if you are 20 feet away and you don't know who they are. At 2 years, this is where things start to end. You no longer have an issue with urges images triggers, flashbacks,

@Shiros_Eyeliner sadly I think it is time for me to depart. I can not socialize with anyone anymore. The internet community, reality, or virtual reality will never understand me. =) But hay, I am used to it
