My mom saw the marks on my arms yesterday. She’s going to try to make me stop. I know it sounds crazy, but I don’t know if I can even survive without it. Somehow it makes everything okay, everything bearable. It’s the only form of release that I have. She’ll never understand and I know she is just so bewildered and disappointed in me. I can’t explain. It just helps.
