Clean & Serene for 12 months


When you first step into the rooms of narcotics anonymous, it seems like a joke. Everyone wants to hug you and speak about admitting powerlessness and finding a higher power, you pick up a white keychain that says “welcome” in gold lettering. You pick up a nice amount of clean time just to lose it [...]

Not committing suicide was the best decision Ive ever made


Im 16; I may seem like a happy girl with a good family but I’ve never felt completely happy in my own house or even in my own skin. My dad and I never got along when I was growing up emotional abuse pretty much sums it up. I started self-injuring in 2009 and have [...]

I’m Really Proud of Myself.
