    Hi Courtney,

    Welcome to the boards, it's nice to meet you :)
    I'm sorry to hear that you've been finding things so tough for so long, but well done for deciding to talk about it - that takes real courage.

    This place is designed to help you talk about these kinds of things, so do have a look around and get involved :)
    You might like to start your own thread over in the Health & Wellbeing section. It's also worth having a quick read of this thread, which talks a bit about how we support each other with self-harm.

    Hope to see you around!
