I am 16 years old & want to tell you about my story. If you have anxiety , panic attacks, depression ect do not give up! I felt so hopeless & so scared, i honesty thought my life was over. I tried everything and nothing seemed to work. I stopped eating , going out, caring about myself. I eventually went to see a physiologist and they sent me to the hospital. With help , patience and love you will get through it! Take time by the minute even by the seconds . This experience is only making you stronger!

Neon_Voltz_

So, I had self-harmed because of issues with family, and the pressure of school. I ended up feeling worthless and dead inside. I began to use a broken ruler, with the edge sharpened to a point, but it got worse over time, until I attempted to take my life by trying to hang myself from my bedroom light; I was found lying on the floor on my room with the string around my neck. My point: Tell someone else that you trust, whether it is friends, family member or seek help online, otherwise it could lead to much darker thoughts.
