As I've already explained I am going thru a very hard moment in my life. The pain I am feeling right now is like nothing I've ever felt before and it was really dragging me down. While talking to others has helped me, during the nights I keep having nightmares and a lot of difficulty to sleep. About 4 or 5 days ago, I tried it, hurting myself. I started cutting my left arm. I have vast knowledge in anatomy, so, I try to avoid major blood vessels and nerves. The cuts are not deep, they are only deep enough to bleed and produce pain. Which is exactly why I'm doing this. Since my whole situation started, I've felt, numb, slow, tired, confused, dizzy, disoriented. And one morning while I was cooking I accidentaly burned one of my fingers, but oddly, instead of spending the whole morning like I've been usually, I was more awake, sharper. Also, that night I slept so much better than other nights, so, as an experiment I started the next night and I slept like a baby. It doesn't works perfectly every night, but it has helped me. I know is not the perfect way to cope with my emotional pain. But, while I get professional help, is working fine for me. I prefer to not share my technique, nor tools for obvious reasons.
