    Today I started my first session at counseling.

    I told my counselor about a lot of things, including my self harm issue. She told me that I have to see her every Monday at 3, or else she'll have to tell my dad or get the hospital and things involved. So I'm just going to play happy. I really didn't want help. -.- ****.
