Default I have a goal...

I am a college student in Colorado. This spring I will graduate with a double major. A bachelor's degree in both History and Psychology. The history degree was easy. The Psych degree was a lot of work. I am again at the top of my class and have been working on my speech for some time. I will start my Master's program in June. I am doing a double major again. In History and Counseling. Again the history degree will be easier than the counseling degree. It will take 2 years before I will be done. The hard part is the required hours of counseling. Even before I can start I have to go 6 months without cutting.

Today is 3 weeks without cutting. It has not been easy. I think my best ever was a month. Please pray for me that I will be able to do this and come September start my internship.

You have a good start! What helps you stay away from cutting?

Determination. My goal to be a Psychologist. I think that is my driving force.

But I also think Anna, my girlfriend has made a difference. Since she has moved in the need to cut has diminished. Her being here also helps I have instant help, someone to talk to.
