    I feel triggered at the moment am unsure what has triggered me but i feel i have to cut
    I want the pain of cutting but i have no ice to hold or band to snap on my wrist.
    I have to have the pain ...i need it right now.
    I want to cut really deep

    Can someone talk to me for a little while please ?

    hiya bruisedandbroken, i hope you have managed to resist...its very hard i know...apart from ice and bands...there is the old butterfly trick...draw butterfly on your usual cutting place...and then remember if you cut you will kill the butterfly. there are lots of similar tricks to try.

    sometimes what i do is vacuum or wash paint work or something physical to distract me...you just have to find something that works for you, we all have different triggers and different distraction techniques and all we can do is share what works for us.

    failing all else, jump up and down and wave your pants in the air! :yay:
