I want to so so much.
The razor's right there.
But I've managed two weeks SH free.
And I don't want to mess that up.
But I want to cut so much.
I hate this.
I feel so... unsafe?
I'm not sure what's going to happen.
I....

Sorry kinda rambling :-/

Hey Faye. Congratulations on going on for two whole weeks without SH, that's really good =)

If you really feel you have to cut... there's always a number of alternatives to try, for me, I find running my hands under ice cold water always sort of helps me calm down, but you can find loads more at the alternatives to SH sticky

Hi Faye!

Remember to breathe okay? Take a few deep breaths. Then go DO something! Distract yourself by going for a walk, getting out of the room, doing whatever.

Another thing that works really well for me is remembering how much I hate the guilt I feel after slipping up. I picture everything happening that week, how frustrating it will be to have to hide the new cuts, how much I hate what I just did.

One last suggestion is to write the names of people you love on your arm (or wherever you usually cut). It is impossible to make a mark when you think about the person beneath it.

Hi. Kudos for going two weeks. That's awesome. Try to find a distraction. Listen to music, write a poem, do a puzzle, whatever you enjoy. Stay strong. (:

Hey faye!! First off congrats for doing 2 week SH free =].. thats great going. I know the urge is strong but you gotta try fight through it. Try some alternatives [ you can find a great list of them in the SH forum] or try reading or writing or listening to music.
