Before I get into my "yay", I want to apologize for the mistakes I've made and the troubles I caused here. Actually, I can't apologize enough for it.

After what seems like an eternity of internal struggles of conflicting emotions of self-hate, suicidal thoughts, and depression following my sexual abuse, I've finally been able to look in the mirror and NOT feel disgust. I don't blame myself for what happned to me anymore and I've gotten professional help for my suicidal thoughts and managed to dig my way out of that hole as well. For once, I feel like I've actually accomplished something in this process. That is a HUGE yay for me! There is a lot I need to work and improve on, (such as being comfortable with getting close to others again and I noticed that I've become even more of a mute and anti social person) but I'm willing to try.

All my thanks goes out to the Scarleteen staff who supported me and gave me advice throughout my ordeal, as well as my family. I can't thank you enough, and I've done a poor job of showing my appreciation.

Thank you. I was in, or maybe still am to an extent, a very dark and bad place. The road will be long and hard, but at least I feel like I can get to the end at some point now. I'm grateful for all of your help, things would have been much worse without Scarleteen's help.
