      I stumbled upon this site while looking for some people to talk to. I'm kind of... having one of those days/one of those moments where everything feels out of place and not right. It's hard to describe. 
      I... don't really know how to format this? I'm in New York right now, upstate and enjoying it a bit. I'm still working through school - I'm studying about animals which is pretty nice. I like to draw and I like books on animal behavior. I am 23 years old, and have been dealing with depression since I was 13 years old, and anxiety since I was... well since I was born really. Not even as a joke. I remember at 2 years old when I was still in a crib - my mother put a plastic covering on the doorknob which prevented me from going out into the house (and well, maybe eating something toxic or falling or something). I got so scared that I cried to the point of vomiting. I've always been like that. Uh, except less crying and less vomiting. But the same level of sensitivity to stress. It's gotten better, but it's still a rough ride. I'm working with several therapists and I'm on medication, but sometimes I just need to talk to someone late at night. And well, most of my therapists aren't awake and neither are my friends. 
      I've tried to commit suicide three times. I self harmed a lot in highschool. I stopped self harming for a few years, but I relapse every so often. Usually when I'm feeling out of place and severely dissociated. I'm trying to reach out more when I'm feeling like this. I've never talked to anyone else who has self-harmed. I'd like to learn how other people experience it, and how they've managed to cope. 
      Also I really hope I posted this in the right forum. I'm terrible with stuff like this.

      When has my grief ever gotten
      in the way of your pleasure?

      Now I resemble a sort of god
      Floating through the air in my soul-shift
      Pure as a pane of ice. It’s a gift.

      The blood is a sunset. I admire it.

      I do not want a plain box, I want a sarcophagus
      With tigery stripes, and a face on it
      Round as the moon, to stare up.
      I want to be looking at them when they come
      Picking among the dumb minerals, the roots.
      I see them already – the pale, star-distance faces.
      Now they are nothing, they are not even babies.
      I imagine them without fathers or mothers, like the first gods.
      They will wonder if I was important.
