Self HaRM and the instability running in my head

Community Member


I am running on fumes right now and the one thing , l want to do is possibly the worst solution .....

I am a person who has self harmed and use the action to feel better and to release the stress inside of me . 

I am needing meds to keep me asleep because without them , l go days and weeks without sleep.

It is all eating me on the inside and , l am supposed to be ok with everyone and everythig around me.  I wonder if its best to go ahead and follow my visions , nightmares or visual disturbances.


It seems like a nice day , might go for a walk !!!!!!!
