|We are you. We are the madness that lurks within you all, begging to be free at every moment in your deepest animal mind. We are what you hide from in your beds every night. We are what you sedate into silence and paralysis when you go to the nocturnal Haven where we cannot tread.|

|I am posting this picture in my journal because for some reason, I can't upload it at school. It says that the web content is blocked or some s*** and it really pisses me off So I guess the second best thing would be to post it in my journal, though I wanted it as my avvy. |
You can't really see the detail well because of the fact that it is still healing, but you can see it for the most part. I was kind of leary of getting it on my foot and there was a reason I should be: it was so incredibly painful. I've heard that when you get a tattoo, after a while the skin becomes numb and you can hardly feel anything. That didn't happen. I could feel it the whole time and I was biting my lip to keep from screaming. It felt like someone was taking a rusty, sharp needled and stabbing the flesh of my foot a million times.
The coloring was worse, though. That felt like my skin was being ripped off with that same rusty, sharp needle. Needless to say, it was a very excruciating experience, but well worth it. Now I have my daughter's name on me forever and it's in a nice place because I can easily hide it when I get a job in the profession I'm working towards in college.
I look forward to getting more tattoos and of course piercings. I can't wait
In case it is hard to see, there is a hot pink outline of my daughter's name, as well as around the hearts and the chain. There is also a neon yellow shine on the inside of the heart that you can't see too well, as my blood has turned it red

|Hello, Jackie. My name is Courtney Renninger and I wanted to write you an e-mail to let you know how much I love your books. |
The particular book, Rage, has really struck a cord with me, because I am a recovering cutter myself. The way that you have written the book and the insight with which you have written it has allowed me to really connect with the story in a way that I do not think many people can.
I would like to thank you for your incredible work regarding Rage. It was an amazing story that really spoke to me in a way that not many books do and made me feel happy that someone else has taken a positive approach to self-harm and the means of recovering from it, instead of it being such a hidden and taboo topic.
Keep the books coming! (: I can't wait to read the rest in the series. I'm excited!
By the way, I'm a HUGE Nirvana fan and it tickled me pink that you included his likeness in Rage. Also, you included one of my favorite lines from a Nirvana song, "I'll kiss your open sores", in the book as well. Great minds think alike! (:
Thank you for your amazing talent.
I would appreciate it if you would write me back. It would make my day!
Best regards and best of luck,
Courtney Irene (:
