Hey, I'm Emma and I suck at writing introductions. I'm fifteen years old and I'm a musical theatre geek, struggling anorexic, poet, stuffed-animal lover, mental patient, overprotective older sister, traveler, dreamer, self-harmer, neat freak, artist, surviver, writer, lesbian, wannabe psychologist/MHS and lover of school, the ocean, music, fairy-tales, quotes, butterflies and Tori Amos. I love people too much and I care too deeply. Most of the time I feel as though I was born into a crazy evil world that spins too fast and flings people senselessly around into bad thing after bad thing, and I don't want to live in that world a lot of the time because it overwhelms me. Music and writing are my solace, and i love reading because it lets me escape into another world. Most of the time I can be very negative and pessimistic (except only about myself) so consider yourself warned.

I've been living in at a CCU for almost a year and I'd be lying if I said I was 'okay' but I am recovering slowly, taking each day as it comes and learning to see the good things and move forward with my life. I've been through a lot of shit and been diagnosed with a lot of things but I am not my diagnoses or my past. I'm just a girl trying to make sense of the f*cked up awful cruel yet sometimes astonishing world I was born into.
