    So I had been cut free for so long I actually stopped counting the days. Lately with all the stress of a new job, family squabbles, and the holidays those old feelings and thoughts are coming back. I was very particular and very organized when I did cut. I actually only use one type of razor to cut myself and threw them all out. So I am trying my hardest not to to go to the store to get some more. I am trying to stay afloat but its literally like an itch I want to scratch right now.

    Is there anything else you can do? Do you have a counselor you can talk to?
