Wow! That's a HUGE step! Congratulations! That's really brave and it says a lot about you! I hope you continue to get help for yourself and let out all your sorrows because you seem like a great person and like you have tons to offer the world so it would be a shame if you weren't here anymore. Please strive to nourish yourself and prevent others from doing anything destructive too!
Also, this sounds soooo dumb but what exactly is SH?

Hey Renee.

I'm glad you've found someone you can talk to about this. I know what a relief it can be to finally open up and receive a good response, and I really hope it helps in your recovery.

All the best.

Renee, congratulations!!! I'm so glad you got help. I hope things go well for you!


There will come a time, you'll see
With no more tears
And love will not break your heart
But dismiss your fears
Get over your hill and see
What you find there
With grace in your heart
And flowers in your hair

"If I held my ground
Would you ask me to change?
This drought bleeds on
Now we're dancing for rain
We drink the air
But it's still not the same
These worlds collide
Yet the distance remains
We point the finger
Never accept the blame"
