My Story: Recovery (Part 3)

I was referred to CAMHS (child and mental health services) and whilst I was on the waiting list I was given a counsellor in school. My sleeping pattern slowly began to improve and I was able to eat again. I started to get my life back on track. I was diagnosed with anxiety and I was given ways to change my thinking patterns. I was with CAMHS for about 4 months before I was discharged. I learnt that my self harm was a need for control, when things fall apart in my life, I would self harm as a way to be able to control at least one type of pain. Life was getting better. I was accepting that dad wasn't really in my life, mum was getting better and I was happier. I did well in my AS exams and continued my studies.

My Story: Mid Teens (Part 2)

Until I was 15, one night in November I had an open evening to sixth form. Mum had a hospital appointment and so couldn't attend so my dad came with me. It was his first time setting foot into the school and I was so excited to show off that he was there, the school thought he was non existent and it was great to finally be able to show him around. I got home, knowing the subjects I was going to take for my A levels, buzzing and happy.
