I'm Scared - August 25th 2018, 08:48 PM

So, I've been 2 and a half years free from SH, but this past month, my depression I feel has gotten worse. I'm starting to feel nothing. And I'm scared that I will break my 2.5 year streak... I'm scared. And I feel alone. My family doesn't understand. I'm broken

Hey Zara,

I know the feeling about not wanting to break a streak and how important it is to keep going with it. Focus on your coping skills, find new ones, talk to someone like a therapist. I know that to get through my personal difficulties, I remind myself over and over again how unhappy I will be with myself if I break my streak and that helps, perhaps it may help you as well? You can do all sorts of self talk things to talk yourself out of carrying out the act. I know, this is easier said than done, but it's worth a try, right? I wish I could give more helpful advice than this, but all I know is what works for me, but perhaps you can take something from what I said today and create your own thing from it.

Take care, okay?
Court
