Desparately Need Accountability - February 1st 2015, 03:41 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I've been self-harming for about three years now and I've mostly done my thighs. Recently, I wasn't getting the sensation I wanted so I moved to my arms. I haven't wanted to stop and have had no real motivation to stop until last night. I was accepted to intern with my state Representative and in this position I will have to go to the capitol building, wear professional clothes, and do all that hoop-la. I'm really excited because I love politics, but some of the clothes I need to wear stop at the elbow...so basically my cuts and scars are showing.
My mom doesn't know I cut on my arms, but last night we went shopping for some clothes and she picked out a really sharp looking shirt. Well, she wanted me to try it on in front of her and that's when I realized couldn't because of my cuts. I ended up avoiding it, but we bought the shirt anyway so I'm going to wear it.
Basically, I need someone who is willing to email/PM me and keep me accountable for not cutting because my internship starts this Tuesday. If anyone sees my self-harm scars/cuts, I will die. I really really really need an accountability partner. <3

Hi there,
Stopping self harming is tough, but I'm sure that you can do it. I would suggest having a look at the alternatives to self harm thread. Good luck with your new job!
Feel free to contact me if you ever need to talk.

Congrats on the internship! It sounds really exciting, I've taken a Political Science class but I was not very good at it. Anyway, I'm always happy to talk if you ever need it and I can PM you anytime you need someone to talk to. I think it might also be a good idea to try to find some alternatives that you can use if you ever feel like self harming and can't PM someone. I also think this internship will help you, since it's helped push your motivation to not self harm. Good luck!
