    I have a great girlfriend, decent job, my own roof over my head, a dog...why do I still want to cut? I've been clean for 5.5 years, I can't ruin this now.

    It's not so much about the things you have going for you in life. Many people may have everything they ever wanted and still have suicidal thoughts and tendencies. Your feelings are separate from your possessions, achievements, and/or relationship statuses.
    Try to focus on your emotions and find positive things in everything you can. It's good that you don't want to ruin the 5.5 years of being self harm free. That is automatically something on your side. Harmful thoughts or thoughts of wanting to hurt yourself can come and go no matter what is going on in your environment. Talking it out might help though :) Keep posting, I'm a good listener.
