    has anyone been forced to stop before? i haven't cut in over a week, because i'm stuck in this stupid hospital! it's annoying me that i can't cut. and even though i don't feel like it right now, i'd still like to have the choice.
    it's just annoying me about little privacy i have here. :mad:

    Sometimes being in control is part of self harming. It can be hard when you feel forced, because you self harm for a reason, and taking away that method, but leaving you high and dry without another, can be very distressing.

    Have you talked to the staff where you are about how you feel? They could help you identify other things you could do, that are more positive, and maybe sort out a plan for you for if you do need to harm.

    i haven't talked to them, no... it's a bit weird talking to them because i've only been here just over a week and it takes me a while to be able to open up to people about how i really feel. my therapist knows though because she comes every day. i might talk to her about it, see if she can talk to them for me.

    thanks :)
