My count is no longer necessary. [[2 years, 16 days for those who are curious]]



I just wanted to tell everyone that I was once where you are now and that if I can do it anyone can. It takes a lot of courage and effort but once you get there; it is the greatest feeling, relief in the world. Keep up the good work and don't let anyone tell you that it's not worth it. It is. Good Luck All.

I just want to say a big well done to everyone who is trying to beat self harm. Your all doing so well, and you should all feel proud of how far you have come. Every minute, hour, day is something to be proud of. Keep strong everybody.

I'm nearing 8 months in about a week-ish or something.
