how to tell i am comfortable talking to you:

  • i say things that make zero sense
  • i say the random things that come to mind
  • i act like a complete idiot when talking to you
  • i use dumb emoticons 

An actual conversation with my Social Worker

  • Me: If other people can hurt me, why can't I hurt myself?
  • SW: Alex, I honestly don't have an answer for you.
  • Me: I get yelled at in a daily basis, I get punched, kicked, and just mentally abused. So why can't I just hurt myself if it makes me feel better? I'd rather hurt myself then have others hurt me.
  • SW: I don't have an answer for you, and I am sorry.
