It’s been a slow slide into the abyss again. He stood at the edge of it for about a week and finally fell in on Friday at school.
He sat silently at his desk with his freshly sharpened pencil and stabbed deep gauges into his hand.making a pool of blood on his desk. He dipped his pencil in and wrote the word “hate” across his work. He made no sounds and showed no visible signs of the anger boiling inside. He calmly walked to the teacher and handed her the paper and sat back down. He was brought to the behavior recovery room by physical restraint. After raging and cursing for more than 30 minutes. He sat down suddenly and quickly pulled out the string on his hoodie and wrapped it around his neck and pulled hard screaming “goodbye I’m done now”.
He is back at Laurelwood hospital, another battle won and lost in the same breath. He his safe, but lost to us again.
