  • I just need to get away... from everything...

    I'm just going to get straight to the point: I am an ugly, fat hideous person who hates themselves, has cut themselves and I believe I am facing severe OCD and depression. I have an on-off relationship with my mam and dad and to be honest I hate everybody except my dog, rabbit and my friend. I flipping hate school and am moving away as soon as I am sixteen. I am only in Year 8 yet have cut multiple times and have considered suicide so many times. No need to call the suicide helpline as I am in conversation with the Samitarians who comfort me a little bit. My best friend hates our school and life at home too, she has a terrible relationship with her mother and step-sister (she said so herself) and I just don't see a point in living. If I do have to live (I do not wish to sin against our Lord) then why not live life to the fullest? A week or two on the run how exciting and incredibly dangerous is that? I have no idea where to go though as where I live is quite dangerous and I just hate it!

    You also mentioned you have been harming yourself, and we’re sorry to hear that you feel the need to. There is a website that people in this similar situation go to write their stories.
