    after a week of many triggers
    feeling silenced
    frustration beyond belief
    feeling abandoned by my therapist and my friends (not reality, just feeling that way)
    i want to cut so badly
    it's a horrible ache that won't leave
    tried all the usual distractions
    making art
    writing on my arm

    am thinking of cutting somewhere on my body where my therapist and friends won't see. of doing it but keeping it a secret... wanting to be sneaky about this...

    please send hugs...

    thank you everyone for reading and taking the time to respond

    i successfully resisted the urge to cut. it was hard, really hard. i had to take it a minute at a time for a while, but i got through it

    and today the urge is much, much less

    i have affirmations written up and down my arms, i look silly but every time i read them i feel good

    thank you again

    I'm glad you had the strength to resist. Your strength can give others strength as well. I know you already know this but I am going to tell you anyway. You are not alone. :hug:
