Unhappy Rough Night - January 14th 2009, 07:58 PM

Yesterday night I found out my mom got laid off from her job. It was nothing personal, just downsizing. I'm scared now that we won't be able to support our selves, our house is for sale for half of what we bought it.

Anyway, I tried to calm myself down. I left the house, took nothing sharp with me. Tried to distract myself by shopping. The whole time I felt like I was going to cry and my arm was burning and I felt like I was shaking. I left and went home and cut I hate life into my arm, a total of 27 cuts.

I rarely ever cut anymore. Almost 3 months.
I'm so depressed. I really don't know what to do. I just want to give in and let myself cut whenever, it is so much easier. No one really knows about this.

I'm sorry about what happened... I know how tough it is when a parent does not have a job. I've been through that. It's not easy but you do not need to cut yourself. The best thing you can do is to talk to someone about how you're feeling. Also, maybe you can help your mom find a new job. Remember, once you hit rock bottom, all you can do is go up.

Just when you think things can't get any worse,
they do. I've learned that life is like an hourglass.
Sooner or later, everything hits rock bottom.
All you have to do is be patient and wait for
someone to turn everything back around. <3
