    It's a wave so these urges will pass, even though it may feel it won't right now. I understand the need to cut in order to keep everything together and keep going - i believe it is one of the most justifiable reasons to sh BUT you won't fall apart if you don't SH, it is just a trick! If you do need something though have you tried putting your wrists under really really cold ice water or putting your whole arm in a basin of ice water - that really works for me because it seriously hurts and creates a numb, throbbing pain. Take care, stay strong. **Hope i've not triggered!**

    Try not to give into these urges, they will die down eventually. The ice trick mentioned before works well, or if you want a really simple one the old rubber band on the wrist trick can be effective.

    Just keep trying with the distractions. Or try sleeping, maybe when you wake you will feel better :) :hug:
