    I've been reading and it sounds like maybe you've lost a bunch of helpers here? Can I come in and be in your sandbox?? I play nice!!

    I'm someone who has done self injury for most o f my life since i was 10.
    it got worse as i grew older.

    I don't seem to be able to fit anywhere. I'd like to fit somewhere! I don't know if this is the right place or not.

    I don't know what else to say?? sometimes i am standoffish but i try to be friendly because i like people even if they hurt you sometimes.

    i guess what it boils down to is that i try not to do the behaviors that land me in the hospital and someines i don't succeed.

    thank you for listening.

    Again, Welcom

    Hello. You seem familiar to me... am I right? I may not be, but I feel like we've come across each other before.

    Welcome. Things here have been hard recently (as I'm sure you've seen), but I think we can make it work.

    Hey Rugger! Glad to see you dear friend. I hope you will stay and keep on being here. We have missed you! and SK
