Day 15. Something you have done right.
I have persevered through some really really dark and jumbled days. I think I have been mostly successful in coping because I have never turned to drugs or alcohol to self medicate, I’ve never had a medically serious suicide attempt, I’m still on good terms with my family (though they drive me nuts), I attend school nearly every semester (including summer school) and I have some friends. It’s easy to just isolate or do the things I’ve listed I haven’t, and trust me I’ve had major urges but I take pride that so far I’ve dealt pretty good. This is no means a judgment on people who have struggled with drug/alcohol, had serious suicide attempts, etc… I understand where it comes from.
