How long since you last did SH - August 17th 2012, 05:42 AM

I thought it might be interesting to see how long it's been since the last time you did SH,to see how people are doing.

Me,it's been nearly 2 months and 1 week.

Five months, one week, three days as of now.

I suggest also taking a look at the Self Harm Free thread. That lets you keep track daily or as often as you would like.

I used to binge and purge every day. I used to beat myself and cut. I could go on, but I'll get to the point.
It might seem cliche, but if anyone reads this, it gets better.
My anxiety has been so bad, I, no detail, hurt myself last night. But I didn't for long because I remembered my fiancee. There are so many other things I could do to help with anxiety over hurting myself. It wasn't until I met my fiancee until I had that viewpoint.
I hope everyone stays safe.

Seven years, two months, two weeks and one day (day before graduating from high school!) since I've actually broken skin.
One year since I keyed myself, but I didn't break skin. Left a bit of a red line, though.
Four days since I scratched myself, but didn't break skin or leave any lines.

5 days, I think?


Some Riot - Elbow

A friend of mine grows his very own brambles
They twist all around him 'til he can't move
Beautiful, quivering, chivalrous shambles
What is my friend trying to prove?

...I think when he's drinking he's drowning some riot
What is my friend trying to hide?

...And it's breaking my heart to pour like the rain
Brother of mine, don't run with those fuckers
When will my friend start singing again?
When will my friend start singing again?

Only about 3 days and for me that's the longest I have been self harm free. So even though it's short i'm still proud of my self.


My wrist have cuts and scars, and they tell my story and who i am.

About two hours, I'm not proud


Women are women, regardless of sex,
and men are men, in the same respects.

You can be both, or a mix of the two,
or you can be neither, if that's what suits you.

But people are people, whatever their parts,
because what really matters, is inside of our hearts.

Over six months.

Guys I'd advise you to take a look at the Self Harm Free thread, it's an official place for this topic. Also congratulations to everyone. There was a time for me when I was self-harming every day and couldn't picture my life without it, and now that time is 3 and a half years ago. If I can do it anyone can. (: Stay strong.
