Hey there,

I don't think you are crazy at all. I think that it could have to do with you wanting someone to care. Brandon, do you feel sad a lot? If so maybe this feeling is do to that; maybe you do not want to feel this sadness anymore but you don't know how to reach out to anyone so you envision hurting yourself and then having someone intervene on your behalf. There could be a lot of reasons for this but I don't think any of them have to do with you being crazy.

Brandon, if, however, you do feel as though you are going to do something bad to yourself I suggest that you go to your nearest Emergency Room. Or, at the least, call a hotline (http://forums.teenhelp.org/f3-general/t22-hotlines/) so that you do not harm yourself.

If you ever want to chat my pm box is always open.

Hey Brandon,

You are definitely not crazy. You are just going through a difficult time right now but what you are experiencing doesn't make you crazy. Sometimes in life it feels like you have no one and you feel rather ignored and then think the only way to get attention is to hurt yourself. But you can get attention in other ways. If people knew just how much you are hurting right now then I think they would support you. But you have to tell them, because they can't read your mind and know what you are feeling.

If you ever need anything at all then I am always happy to listen. Stay strong
