Hey Frankie,

2 years without self harm is amazing! That is such an achievement. I know you say you have no idea why you are feeling like this but perhaps it would help to think back to what was happening when you started to get cutting thoughts. Then you might be able to identify if there is anything that has triggered you.

You say everytime you try to talk to your grandma that you never manage to find the words of what to say. You could try writing a letter for her that way you could think about what you want to say and wouldn't have to worry about what you are going to say. It might be something to think about if you are finding it really hard to talk to her. I think it is really good that you want to talk to her because she could be a great help I hope you manage to talk to her. Stay strong and don't give up

That must be so horrible for you to feel like no one understands. Some people will be more understanding though. It can take time though for people to understand because they have never lived your life so they can never know how it feels exactly. But they can try to understand. Could you not go back to your doctor and explain things?

Maybe it would be beneficial if you bought her a book about self-injury and told her it would mean a lot to you if she read it. Maybe it would help her understand a bit more, though you have to realize that you can't MAKE someone understand. (You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.) There are so many people, though, that will understand you. Your grandma may not, and I'm so sorry for that. Some people make the wrong assumptions because it hurts to make the right ones. There is a whole team of people on this website that do, though; and I'm sure you have friends, teachers, counselors at school and other family members who will try their best to understand as well. You just have to keep opening up until somebody listens.

And please, don't beat yourself up for having thoughts of self-injury again. It's completely normal. It doesn't make you any less of a person at all. You are such a strong person and it's so incredible that you haven't cut in two years. I have total confidence that you can beat any urge that comes your way. I know it's frustrating and confusing, but it's okay. And it will be okay.

You can talk to me any time you feel triggered - PM or e-mail me. Best of luck.
