Cool Out of the darkness, and into the sun..... - September 25th 2014, 10:18 PM

I'm happy, like really, really, really happy for the first time in ten or eleven years.

I haven't had self-destructive thoughts in months.

Downside is, I feel like I've lost a decade of my life... It's like, one moment I'm 18 and the next I'm 29... I'm just like... what? No.

And I'm happy for you; it's great to see you feeling so good. And the good thing about 'losing' part of your life is that now you can regain it, and turn it into whatever you want it to be. So good luck with everything, and keep us updated.

I'm so glad you're feeling happy! You deserve that. Mericle is right, now you can regain your life and make it what you'd like.

You are doing amazing right now! I think now you have more time to enjoy yourself rather than worrying about triggers!


Let it come and let it be...
