Never quit fighting!
TWLOHAty I have talked to a couple friends about it but they think that I should not show my emotions because it will just make it harder on the rest of my family. I have been seeing a counselor about everything I've been through, but each time she asks if I have thought of self-harm or suicidal thoughts it has become so easy for me to lie and act like I'm perfectly fine. I'm used to being the strong one of the family. I don't want to let them down. I definitely will hit you all up on the email.
