Red face Here comes the sun. *trig* - July 9th 2012, 04:17 AM

Since I got my job here I've changed SO much. It's been amazing.
  1. I don't hate myself. Yes, there are some things about myself that I dislike. But I no longer hate myself. And THAT is huge.
  2. I made it 52 days without cutting! Longest I've made it EVER. I slipped about a week ago though. But I'm working on it and getting better.
  3. I learned how to not give a shit about what people think about me. For example: "Why are you wearing long sleeves", "Are you bipolar?","lol, are you anorexic?","What happened to your arm?", "Your face is disgusting". I haven't been hurt by any of this. I'm fucking proud of myself.

I'm happy. I haven't been suicidal.
My life is changing.
This job is the best thing that ever happened to me.

I'm sorry that this reply is so late, but I'm seriously happy for you! The fact that you've made so much progress is something that you should be so proud of! Stay strong, Haylee. This is just the beginning of your recovery.

foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

Thats amazing that you have come so far. Great job! This make me smile. Stay strong.





From day one I talked about getting out
But not forgetting about
How all my worst fears are letting out
He said, "Why put a new address on the same old loneliness?"
When breathing just passes the time
Until we all just get old and die

Haylee,
I'm so glad your doing better! Losing the self-hatred is like, practically impossible.
But, you did it. You beat it. Your getting better. Yeah you slipped up, but that's part of recovery and I am SO proud of you. <3
Please, keep going. Your happy, and that's all that matters.
Stay strong hun. <3
