Hi, I'm Emily and I do not self injure nearly as much as I used to. I'm in the process of studying for my GED because I had a very chaotic school experience and ended up dropping out. I am currently on zoloft and have been for about 2 years, as it has been working for me tremendously.
I own 3 tarantulas, recieving my first in April of 2011, and I am absolutely in love with them. My first, which is a fiesty a Rose Hair, is Esperanza. My second is a Chaco Golden Knee, Lenore, and she is my 6 inch sweetheart. My most recent that I bought in October of 2011 is a Pink Toe spiderling, which I haven't named because I do not yet know the sex, but it's a little food lover!
I am a proud auntie of a nephew, who just turned 6 and is my best friend, and my niece, who is a spunky little 18 month old. I babysit for my income.
I have recieved my drivers permit after years of driving anxiety.
I live with my boyfriend of 15 months, for whom I can stay with certainty that I am in love with.
I used to cut myself almost everyday for 3 years straight, attempted suicide multiple times, and was in a downward spiral of self hatred and depression. I am still fighting the long, hard battle that depression and SI is, but I am proud to say that I have crawled out from under that dark cloud that can be life.
If anyone needs someone to talk to, I'm here.
