when i was 14 i started cutting because i was getting yelled at by my mom a lot and i didn't know how to handle it. so Christmas eve of 2008 my mom was yelling at me and it was really starting to upset me and i didn't really know what to do so i saw a screw driver on my dresser and i picked it up and cut myself with it and i felt better right after i did it. it felt like for just that moment that everything was going to be ok and i had nothing to worry about and from that day on it just got worse and worse. i am now 17 years old and i was 14 when i started cutting even though i have not completely stopped i am getting better i have not cut myself in a month and a half and i go to counseling now so i can learn to deal and i will always entrust in God and even though i have not stopped completely i know God is there every step of the way on my journey to recovery.

that is so awesome that you're on your way to recovery! even though you haven't stopped yet, you're making the effort and God enjoys you trying, and even though it may be tough(i know it is for me anyway at times) in the end, it will be worth it, and you'll be so proud of yourself!

I am glad that you are stopping. I am sure that your testimony will bless the lives of a lot of girls. I will be praying for you and that you will continue to do good in your walk with the Lord. I will be praying for you and your mom.
