    you know hon i hear ya. i know you have friends here, and i'm sure without a doubt you'd be missed if you left. you are also welcome to stay, but in the long run i happen to believe that you need to do what's going to be best for you. i'm afraid that only you can make that decision too.

    take care hon

    In AA we are alcoholics helping alcoholics. My thought is that those who self harm can help each other like no one else can. Maybe a list of pros and cons of your life before you came here and after you came here would give you a clearer picture of what is best for you.

    I have learned that I don't have to follow all the "professionals" advise. I have a brain that I'm entitled to use to make my own decisions. I say this because you have the right to make your own decisions as well and I believe you are capapble of doing so. :hug:

    I usually try to avoid coming here if I'm not in the right mood (like if I'm happy, this forum may make me sad). So, most of the time I only come here when I've already been 'triggered'.

    Maybe you can get the email addresses of your friends so you can keep in touch? That way, you don't have to be on SF to talk to them.
