    Economic crunch in my city and low bank account and holidays and not feeling comfortable talking to my family is making me want to cut up my back--maybe eighteen new cuts.

    God damnit, the 51 cuts last week staved off the impulse for eight bloody days:sad:

    I'm going to try to not do it.

    I'm SOO proud of you for resisting the urge to cut!! :biggrin: I know how difficult it is. You really inspired me! Next time I feel like I need to self harm I'm going to do something productive to get out my frustration. :biggrin:

    On a less emotional level, thinking about the bother of cleaning up and the possibility of infection can help me not do it.
