    self harm my story

    name sara
    This is my story:
    I started self harming at the age of 10. My mum and dad split up, my brother, sister and myself choose to live with mum, but we still had to see our dad every weekend. He kept having different girls in our lives, so we lost contact with him. My brother and sister blame me for our parents splitting up because of my learning difficulty, MLD, which I found out that I had not to long after I fell out I will my dad.
    I was very close with my auntie, but both her and my grandmother died of cancer. I stopped self harming last year for 79 days, but I relapsed on March 17, 2012. It is so difficult to stop cutting again, but I managed to and so far I'm 150 days clean.

    What an amazing achievement, well done.

    Can you tell us some more about MLD?

    I've had a look, and MDL could stand for moderate learning disability, something like dyslexia.
