A milestone

    A year ago today, I made a huge, life-changing decision.

    I decided to stop hurting myself. It was a problem that had plagued me for most of my sixteenth and seventeenth years, and was brought on by a number of very bad life situations involving relationships and school and parents and all kinds of other things.

    But a year ago today, I fessed up to my parents and asked them for help.
    I also promised myself that I would never intentionally harm myself ever again and find better ways to deal with problems.

    It's been a very long year. I managed to solve a lot of my problems by getting rid of one of the roots of the problem (my ex boyfriend, though technically I didn't get rid of him, he just started dating someone else), and this paved the way for better things in my life. A more positive attitude, better grades, and a new boyfriend a month or so later :D

    I moved four thousand miles, from London to Nebraska, but things have been great here. I've made fantastic friends, I have good grades in my classes and I've managed to maintain a long distance relationship (thank GOD for webcams, that's all I have to say).

    It hasn't been easy. I have wanted to give up on several occasions, but I found many new ways to cope and stay happy.

    And I'm so happy I've made it this far, and I feel intensly proud of myself.

    I wanted to thank everyone here who has been of help to me over the past year. I came to several of you for help in times of need, and you were always a great source of comfort to me.
    So thank you everyone for being an extremely cool bunch of friends.
    It means a lot to have people in my life who care.

    I'm going to go celebrate by eating junk food and buying a new book at Barnes and Noble.
    And maybe making a cake.
    You know, just because I have an excuse to make and eat cake. :)

    You've earned the junk food - and the cake!

    Wow, Hex, well done ! I haven't been here for long, and I can't pretend I know you or what you've been through, but I know several people who have been through difficult times in different ways, and I know the difference between thos who act like you and those you just let themselves sink, and I know it can be hard to swim up to the surface, however far down you are, so Congratulations, and enjoy that cake and all the cakes still to come. Life is cake, cake is life ! :D ;) :supz:
