And It's Just Another Pretty Relapse - August 8th 2009, 07:34 PM

Relapse número dos.

In New York on Thursday night. I was in the shower and I lost it. The only thing I found was my friend's red razor so I used that. She's the only one who knows because there was blood on the towel. My leg and upper arm so I can hide it.

I'm starting to give up. Which sucks. I went eleven days before this happened. I think I can stop. It's just hard...

Hey hun,

Hang in there. Please don't lose hope. Slip ups are bound to happen but they are just bumps along the road. Pick yourself back up and keep going. =) You can do this I know you can!

<3 Take care hun

11 days is simply amazing, no other way to put it. It's so hard, that takes a lot of work and effort. I'm proud of you for being able to do that.

Relapse sucks. But right now you have two options. You can decide not to let this stop you and remain self harm free, or you can continue to self harm. It's up to you. Hopefully you chose the first option.

How did you stay self harm free for the eleven days? Pick out what worked, and what didn't. And write that down so you can remember it. Then use the positive things to try to make it twelve days.

If you haven't already seen the Alternatives and Distractions thread? It's a sticky at the top of this forum. If you can't find it let me know and I'd be more than happy to link you. If you try at least five of them taking at least ten minutes each, then hopefully the urge will be gone.

Best of luck, let me know if there is anything I can do to help!

Hi Han,

First of all congrats on lasting 11 days, thats incredible! I know some days its harder to get through without SH then others. Just stay strong, keep your head up. You can get through this. Try challenging yourself. You made it 11 days, try going 12 days, or double it and go 22 days! You can do anything if you put your mind to it!

PM me if you need anything

Hey Han,

I wanted to say as well how amazing 11 days is. That is a great achievement. You can stop; you have already shown that you can by going 11 days without it. It is hard and you will have slip ups along the way when trying to stop. But what really matters is how you move on after these slip ups. You have to be able to pick yourself up. You can stop so keep thinking positive and telling yourself that you can do it because you really can

If you need anything at all then I am happy to listen always
