by means of an introduction...

Are you over the age of 18? yes, I'm 18 (and a half, I might add)
Have you ever self-mutilated? yeah... I'd like to say I used to, but the last time was within the last two weeks. before that, it was... a few months, I guess. I started cutting in seventh grade (I just graduated from hs) and did it almost daily until halfway through eighth grade. I tried to kill myself, was hospitalized, my other little habit was discovered, and I saw a terrible therapist for about a year. I didn't cut for about three months and then I started again because I didn't know what to do. it continued, on-and-off, until now, I guess. I've also burned myself from time to time.
Seen a therapist? after the terrible therapist, I saw another not-so-good one for about three months and then started seeing my "current" one, who is awesome and I love her. (that's definitely not what I would have said a year ago.) we actually just (about a month ago) "terminated," but I think I'll still see her from time to time when I feel like I need it.
Been hospitalized? not specifically for cutting, but once for overdosing and another time for planning to and my friend called the cops
Did your doctor ever say that SI goes away after your teenage years are over? no
Are you still trying to find peace? yeah, I guess you could say so. I would say I'm generally a lot more stable than I was a year ago or anytime before that. but I still have my bad days...

anyway, other than that, my name is Hannah and I play the cello. I'm going to music school in Ohio next year. that's pretty much all there is to know about me.
