|Self-Injury: You are NOT the only one.|
Monday, March 1, 2006 is SI Awareness Day."We are male and female. We are artists, athletes, students, and business owners. We have depression, DID, PTSD, eating disorders, borderline personalities, bipolar disorder, or maybe no formal diagnosis at all. Some of us were abused, some were not. We are straight, bi, and gay. We come from all walks of life and can be any age. We are every single race or religion that you can possibly think of. Our common link is this: We are in pain. We self-injure. And we are not freaks."
I know too many people for whom this is applicable.
Take a minute to read about it.
Take a second to understand.
