    I can feel myself slowly losing my composure

    again, I'm probably going to end up going back. I don't even care what happens to me anymore. Life isn't worth trying for

    I think I was 16 when it happened.

    I was tired, grabbed a bottle of unopened tylonel and told my parents goodnight while they were watching depressing **** on the news. I'm gay, but at the time my parents didn't know. Only a hand full of people. I was scared to tell them since my grandma used to tell me how...

    I was once in a hospital

    where I made many friends. There was screaming sometimes, and one girl would get violent. Another would seek attention negatively.

    I had a short stint in a mental hospital a

    7years ago. I was held in the room that only had a small window. The only thing I remember, is that they offered my Boost chocolate to drink. I was placed there because of self harm, but 7 years later, I am still engaging in the activity --just not as often.

    I'm 14 and left one yesterday in indiana.

    I was there because I overdosed and tried to kill myself. They really helped me but.. I'm scared that I don't belong in the normal world or anywhere. I was diagnosed with O.D.D and major depression.
