I am 23 years old.
I have been living on my own for over 4 years now.
So why do the nightmares make me feel like I'm 5 years old again, cowering in fear? That is what made me start cutting at the age of 13.
I haven't self harmed in a year and a half... since right after my bestt friend commited suicide. But the nighttmares are more and more frequent. I don't have anyone to talk to because they wouldn't understand. I don't want them to have a Jaded view of me.
I'm trying so hard not to relapse.
