cut and 51/50 free - August 28th 2017, 02:50 PM



So I am 18 days away from being cut free for 4 months, along with it being four months since I was on a 51/50. I am so happy this hasn't happened in a very long time. I am still self-harming by biting myself but the no cutting is a start. I am going to keep staying strong and hope I can make it to a year then to years. If I can go to years without being on a 51/50 I can get a job and the mental hospital and that is my goal. I would love to work with people with mental health issues, but I am not cut out for college, and I can do this without having a degree.

Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow.
Just walk beside me and be my friend"

I'm glad to hear you haven't been self-harming or been 5150 for four months! That is a huge accomplishment, just remember to take it one day at a time. You've totally got this, and I hope you will be able to take the job you want in two years.

Keep it up!

That is a huge accomplishment. I am super glad that you are doing well.

When you get closer to looking for work you should look into job services for people who have disabilities. There are a few out there and I know that SSI/SSDI also has a program. However, I was told that going through the department of rehabilitation would actually be better than the program from SSI/SSDI. These services can help quite a bit and can help you figure out what types of careers you'd be best at etc. They can, sometimes, also provide some training for certain programs as well.

Best of luck!

I have been self-harming, just not cutting. The other stuff isn't all that bad.

I don't want to work any place else besides a mental hospital.
