Depression and Self-Harm: Brittany's Story
At the age of 14, following a quarrel with a friend of hers from school, Brittany turned to her mother for comfort. Instead, her mother lashed at her calling her selfish. From that day on, Brittney began to internalise her feelings. Her insecurities grew and she turned to drugs and alcohol. At a party with friends from school, her excessive drinking led to sexual abuse. This made things worse. She began to engage in self-harm practice, cutting her arms regularly. The more depressed she got, the worse the self-inflicted harm became until she was hospitalised for it.
