Unhappy I couldn't make it - August 24th 2012, 03:08 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So. It's over a half-year since i cut. Atleast it was until last night. I felt like crap. I just wanted to hide in my bed forever and never leave it. Because noone needs me out there anyway.
I felt so proud about that i hadn't cut but then i destroyed it. And this was worse than the old ones.
i don't know what to do with myself.

Forgive yourself and try again? Half a year self harm free is amazing; you should be proud of yourself for accomplishing that much. I know it's hard, but relapses are part of recovery. You just have to pick yourself up again and start over. Don't hate yourself for it. If you haven't already, it might help to take a look at this list of alternatives to self harm when you're feeling triggered http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/. We're always here for you and we care about you. Don't give up.

A year and a half is so amazing, Sara. You did that. You accomplished that and nothing can take that away or change it. Like Tigereyes said, relapses are a part of recovery. That's hard to deal with, but it happens. You made it so long before, and you can do it again and then some. You're so much stronger than you think you are.
Hang in there!

Hope is real. Help is real. LOVE is the movement.
