I was a sad girl. I wanted to die once and it was a terrible feeling that was in my mind. I got so stressed once that I cut myself and I shouldn't have but I did and stopped. Crohn's can make me so angry like how I refused to take my medicine once for a couple days. Crohn's is hard and when you have to go to school on a bad day it is worse. When I go to school and have a painful day I tell my best friend and she doesn't really support me so I stopped telling her. I only tell my mom.  I'm really young to cut because I'm 10 but nobody ever should cut or wanna die but ,I still am sad a lot but I'm a little better does anyone kind of relate ish?
