    hey, I've got these very annoying problems:
    1.I usually self harm directly before I go to bed and thanks to the throbbing I can't sleep, I always have to wait until it stopps. How can I stop it faster or ignore it?

    2.When it heals it itches horribly, what helps to stop the itching or at least make it better?

    Try something cool, like a cold flannel and rest it on it, for both.

    I'm the same... I cut RIGHT before bed 99 percent of the time.

    I usually don't wait for all of the bleeding to stop before I lay down to start the falling asleep process so I always wrap mine in gauze and a tensor bandage....then right before I'm about to fall asleep I take it off.

    For the itching...... I just moisturize the hell out of it.

    wet towel is the only thing i can think of- that stops throbbing & itching for me, but you're right-that's not very discreet when you're out in public
