My dad had passed away in September 2015 from cirrhosis of the liver. On the one year anniversary, I attempted to slit my wrists. Total fail. I only got one wrist, not deep enough to bleed profusely, when my boyfriend called me and calmed me down. I suffered from cutting before that and haunting thoughts about cutting after that. It's been hard.

I think about it all the time, even more so over these last few years as I getting older. Fear of aging is not it but loneliness that is great. Its been many, many years of being friendless, alone at holidays, special occasions etc... And these feelings of odd emptiness have been since childhood. never really having escape this world of one I've known for so long. The question I ask myself during the course of my daily existence is: How do I living not really knowing if I ever have. I know Christ loves me and saved me many times from avenues I've chosen to drown/end this despair. So for me it a second, minute at a time that I'm holding on.
