Sixteen months - February 2nd 2009, 12:38 PM

I just wanted to share my joy that as of roughly fifteen months ago (very beginning of November, 2007) was the last time I ever harmed myself. After a three year battle with SH that tore both myself and my family apart, I have been able to stay free from SH and have had few urges to return to this method of coping with things.

I say this because I just need to get it out somehow; it's a big accomplishment for me.

I also say this because my hope is that somehow this can help other people. I know how impossibly difficult it can be to stop harming oneself and break free of the hold it can have on oneself.

It is possible to rise above it. Please don't give up hope; you are worth it.

For a little show
In the hazy milk of twilight
No one had to know

Hey Jordan
keep it up!

"But in the ruins there is still a canvas. There is still beauty in your brokenness. The faded scars show healing reminding me that even though Iíve been in dark places, Iíve survived and learned and become stronger".

Wow!! Congratulations Jordan! It has been 2 months for me, but I hope it continues on to 16 months and more! Keep it up! I believe in you

Perhaps we all give the best of our hearts uncritically;
to those who hardly think about us in return.

it's not that we want to die; it's that we want to live
