    I understand, I've been there before. I wouldn't wish this upon anyone, even my worst enemies. It doesn't last forever though, even if it seems that it does. Focus first on getting through the day before you try to stop SH. Doing too many things at once is a bad idea.

    Hey Amanda hunny :console:.

    I know where you are coming from. My cpn told me once that if sh was stopping me from killing myself then that's what I should do. She knew that my sh was superficial & often it was enough to take my mind off things.

    It may not have been the best advice to give someone but since I wasn't open to other forms of distraction she said she'd rather see me sh instead of being in the ED because of some attempt.

    In a way it helped because it stopped me going too far as she trusted me & I didn't want to let her down.

    I hope you can understand some of my ramble. Like you said, it's not the answer but it's what keeps us grounded sometimes.

    Please take care hun xx
