    I cut myself yesterday for the first time in 3 years. I feel so ashamed, and weak. why couldn't i have gone longer. I feel that I let myself, and my family down.

    You are not weak for having a relapse. 3 years is a decent marker, and having conquered that milestone once, you have shown to yourself that you are capable of not giving in to the urges.

    As for the feeling of letting anyone down, that might take a while to subside. One of the ways in which it is likely to dispel faster, is through you not returning to the life of a 'cutter'. Do keep reaching out - you're aware that there are those who will support and help through this site too.
