Ive Self Harmed for 7 years, and no matter how hard i try, i cant stop. Ive tried all the distraction methods but i always go back. Ive tried drawing on my skin, elastic bands, ice, writing feelings down, listening to music, going out with friends, writing poetry, cooking anthing i just cant stop.. I want to be strong for my daughter, but i dont feel i am being through self harming. i cant even take her swimming at the local pool cos of the cuts and scars... :blub: i feel so weak and pathetic i know i need to stop. Is there anyone else in the same situation? or is there anyone who has sucessfully stopped that can help....?
