Now fight!

I know it seems stupid to take a life lesson from a movie about a schoolgirl in a mental hospital but I did. I cut for almost three years…I was doing so well until last year. My mom and I became seriously ill. I was in a coma for a week and almost died. My mom did after fighting for 5 months. I’m 24 now and until last June had lived with her almost all my life. We were not only family but friends….My mom fought for five months through horrific pain… She fought for me. It’s only right I fight to honor her. It’s not easy to learn how to live so late in life but I had someone amazing and beautiful to help me believe that maybe faith isn’t something to scoff at. That hope isn’t just a ticket to pain and disappointment. Like it says at the end of Suckerpunch, “You have all the weapons you need. Now fight.”
