I'm new(: - November 24th 2012, 08:16 PM

My name is Kenzie (NOT McKenzie!!)

I guess i should put some reason as to why i'm here?

So i've been struggling with anorexia for just over a year.. Which is rough. A lot of suicidal ideation and self harm... Then in January I was raped.
I was sent to a hospital for being SOO suicidal on August 11. Then on August 25, i went to residential treatment.. I finally told someone there about the rape, and almost immediately started having flashbacks. So that's where i'm at now...

Any help or just FRIENDS would be appreciated, i feel a little weird seeking help over the internet so yeah.

Hey Kenzie.
Welcome to the site, My name is Kayla.
I know how hard it is for someone to Self harm as I have for over 2 years now. To do through a lot of things in life is never easy and it is always a good thing to have friends you can talk to about it. That's where I could come in. If you ever want someone to talk to feel free to message me anytime. I would love to chat sometime.

HII Kenzie
My name is Courtney, I'm also new to TeenHelp and am starting to get used to it. I'm very sorry to hear abt wat u hav been going thru. I know wat its lik to go thru self harm, I have been thru the same thing with self harm and suicidal tendencies. Its a hard thing to go thru but not something that you have to go thru alone. And you may feel like you are alone of your the only one who is going thru it but ur not. You have alot of support.
Take Care
