Smile Big Step! - August 15th 2009, 06:13 PM

i have been SH free for about 3 months and today i finally took the step
to get rid of my blades. Broken and at the bottom of a garbage bin .
Kinda felt good to be rid of them.
Thats all i had to say, felt the need to share

Blake,
I'm so proud of you! This step is definitely in need in sharing, so I'm glad you did. I can't believe how strong you have been to be able to do this! It's just so fabulous. You should definitely reward yourself with ice cream now. That's what I would do at least.
3 months is such an accomplishment, and so is throwing away your blades. I wish I could let you see just how happy I am for you.
Please take care of yourself,

-EmiLeigh

Hey Blake,
Three months is great! I'm glad you were able to get ride of them, it's a big step. I'm sure it hasn't been easy, but you're a strong individual and I know you'll be able to stay SH free. Remember that TH is always here for you if you need any support! Take care. :]
